A 28-year-old Macon woman told police someone tried to burn her home down by lighting a beer bottle filled with gasoline and throwing it in her house.

The woman called police to her house along the 3000 block of Gledhill Street shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday, according to the police incident report.

She told the officers she was lying in bed when she heard a crash and found the gasoline-filled beer bottle stuffed with a rag in her living room.

There was no fire damage to the house, but the living room window was broken, according to the report.

The woman told police she has no idea who would want to cause harm to her or her property.
