6 injured in firebombing on Detroit's southwest side

- Six people are being hospitalized after they were injured in a firebombing on Detroit's southwest side late Sunday night. Four of those who were injured are children, with the youngest being 4 years old.

The fire happened just before midnight in the 5700 block of Otis Street, which is near Michigan and Livernois avenue. The fire deputy tells us something was definitely thrown inside the house that accelerated the fire. Authorities are investigating the fire as arson.

The people are recovering in the hospital with burns and smoke inhalation. We're told all of them are expected to survive.
