Firefighters battled the blaze from outside as flames shot through windows on the second floor and into the attic. Residents were able to escape from the fire. Antolin Garcia was taken to Swedish American Hospital and Caelos Medrano was transported to Rockford Memorial Hospital.

Both had burns to their face, hands and feet. The Rockford Fire Department says they’ve received reports that a fire bomb was thrown into the front window. Investigators are still looking into this.
