Northside home fire-bombed after argument

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Neighbors say a disagreement between two people is what led to a firebomb being thrown into a house on the Northside Sunday night. Two people were inside at the time, according to JSO.

On Monday, melted lights and a charred interior was left behind.

According to witnesses, just after 10:30 p.m. Sunday night, someone lit some kind of flaming device and threw it into the back window of the home.

Lawrence Nixon lives next-door to the home on Zinnia Avenue, just off Moncrief. He says it happened when he was getting ready for bed.

"Next thing I heard was a big explosion -- boom -- and I looked out the window, flames way up," Nixon said. He said the flames reached 20-feet in the air. Nixon says the victims in the home and the suspect have a long history.

Nixon says he is glad it didn't end any worse. Neither of the victims were injured during the incident.

The suspect's name hasn't been released.
