Four People Set on Fire in Denver

Police are still searching for two men who doused four people in a flammable liquid and lit them on fire with a propane torch. One of the women attacked says the men demanded drugs, reports the New York Daily News.

The attacked woman has no idea why she was targeted Thursday evening, when she says two strangers came to her home demanding drugs and threatening to burn her apartment down. She suggested to CBS Denver the attackers may have been looking for someone else.

They sprayed her and three other people inside the home with the flammable liquid — possibly gasoline — then lit it with a propane torch, she said.
Police are still searching for suspects and a motive.

“This is a highly unusual attack and we’re very concerned about it,” a police spokesperson  told the Denver Post. “We hope that if anyone has information they will let us know who these two individuals are.”

One woman was rushed the University of Colorado hospital with life-threatening burns. The three other victims, two men and one woman, were hospitalized for less serious burns.
