An apartment along Hillsdale Boulevard in the Foothill Farms neighborhood was hit in a suspected firebombing Thursday night.
The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department says someone reported that “someone threw a firebomb into their home.”
The suspected firebomber was on the roof of a nearby building, according to Sheriff’s spokesman Jason Ramos.
People inside the home were able to escape unharmed. The person who reportedly threw the device was arrested a short time later.
Investigators say the man in custody smelled strongly of gasoline.
