Teenager burnt as firework thrown through window
A Norwich teenager was burnt after a firework was thrown through the window of his mother’s home and set fire to the carpet.
A neighbour said the family, who live in Rolleston Close, were forced to flee their property as it filled with black smoke.
It is understood that the victim’s 13-year-old son was burnt during the incident, which happened at about 8.30pm on Thursday, November 1.
A 33-year-old woman, who lives nearby, said: “I was upstairs at the time and the next thing I know I heard a lot of shouting.
“They came over to get help from my husband as he is an ex-fireman. There was a lot of smoke in the house and the carpet was on fire.
“They were very shocked about it all. No one has a clue who did it.”
