A Northridge apartment was set on fire early this morning after a suspect or two threw molotov cocktails at it, according to KTLA. The news comes on the heels of a Monday morning molotov cocktail attack in Long Beach, but no connections have been confirmed. This morning's incident took place on the 8600 block of Wilbur Avenue around 4:30 a.m. There were no injuries and damage was sustained to a screen door along with a charred wall and sidewalk.
