Family member was burned in yet another firebomb attack on a home.
There is no indication that this attack was related at all to the last reported incident. We wonder if this family is involved in a court trial, so if anyone knows please let our readers know.

Another family is living in terror after an unknown person used a Molotov cocktail to set their home alight. Do we have a problem on this island? What the heck is happening lately?
If we consider some news stories, we have to wonder…

Here are two stories from The Nation.

Scary firebomb attack (Nation story here)
THE Gill family of Jubilee Gap, Martindales Road, St Michael, are living in fear.
One week ago, someone threw what is believed to be a Molotov cocktail into the house they are renting, injuring a family member, damaging furniture and clothing and leaving the house in an uninhabitable state.
And the family are so traumatized that they do not want to remain there but have nowhere else to go.
Shirnell Gill said her mother Marlene was sitting on a couch in the living room last Wednesday, when an unknown individual threw the fiery object into the house.

The Jubilee Gap, Martindales Road, St Michael family has been on edge since the Molotov cocktail was thrown into the rented house in the early hours of last week Wednesday.
Gill and family are fearful of staying there, but have no other placeto seek refuge.
Police are investigating.
