DETROIT (WWJ) – A fatal house fire on Detroit’s west side might have been the result of a firebombing.

The fire took off early Thursday morning at a home at the corner of Intervale and Cruse streets, in the area of Grand River and Schoolcraft.

A woman who was in the home told investigators that a car pulled up and someone threw something, sparking the fire. A man was discovered inside the home after firefighters extinguished the flames. He reportedly died on the way to the hospital. A cause of death has not yet been determined.

The man’s name has not been released; he’s identified in reports as a 23-year-old.

A cause of the fire remains under investigation.
