SE Tenn. woman, 86, wants to know who attacked her house with a firebomb

CHATTANOOGA — A stroke and a broken hip have slowed 86-year-old Hazel Banther a bit.

But she still manages to get to church on Sundays and to get her hair fixed on Fridays. Usually, Tuesdays are quiet.

That changed two weeks ago when someone threw a homemade firebomb into her garage. They tried again the next night, too.

Both fires went out before doing much damage, but they left Banther wondering whether it might happen again.
