Another Staten Island Church Targeted in Fire-Bombing Attempt

From Staten Island-

A flaming bottle was thrown into a Staten Island church early Thursday morning in an apparent attempt to set the building on fire, police say, the second time in a week that a church in the Stapleton neighborhood has been targeted.

Minister Dale Smith at the First Central Baptist Church says someone threw a Molotov cocktail from outside the church, and he believes the person intended to smash through a side window and set the building on fire.

But it appeared the flaming bottle bounced off the window and landed on an awning a few feet away, incinerating it.

"This could have been a lot worse," said Smith. "We are very, very blessed that it was not."
