The NYDailyNews is reporting a terrifying story that could have been fatal for a black family in California….
A panicked family of seven bolted out of their California home early Wednesday as somebody tried to torch the two-story home with Molotov cocktails after spray-painting racist slurs across its facade, police said.
Roshon Williams was rousted awake by her 28-year-old daughter who screamed, “Mom, the house is on fire,” around 3:15 a.m., according to NBC Bay Area.
Williams grabbed a fire extinguisher and rushed out the backdoor of her Antioch home with her family.
Somebody had graffitied “N——” and a swastika in blue spray-paint across the windows and a door.
Williams managed to put out most of the flames before firemen arrived.
Investigators later determined somebody had placed three Molotov cocktails outside the house in an attempt to burn down the structure and trap the family inside.
One guess at who might have done such a heinous crime…
Williams recently installed security cameras on her façade and told reporters she reviewed the footage Wednesday morning and saw a “Caucasian” male walking up to the house with “light from a cellphone.”
“That must be when they sprayed (the hateful messages),” she said. “We saw him light three bottles right there on the sidewalk and proceed to throw them at the house.”
No surprise there. We’re just glad these folks got to safety before the fire got much worse.
