The damage was minimal from a series of arson attacks across eastern
Queens on Sunday night that the police were investigating as a possible
bias crime against Muslims.
"It was a good night for the F.D.N.Y. and
the people of south Jamaica," said the official, Lt. Chris Corbin, as
he stood outside the scene of one of the attacks, a private home at
146-62 107th Avenue.
No one was hurt in the four attacks, in which
homemade firebombs were apparently used. In three of the four attacks,
the police said, Molotov cocktails were made with Starbucks bottles.
The first attack occurred just before 8 p.m. at a bodega at 179-46 Hillside Avenue.
Ten minutes later, another crude firebomb was thrown, this time at the home at 107th Avenue, and the house caught fire.
