A woman and two children were injured in an explosion and subsequent fire in their home in Sterrendaalders in Den Bosch last night. The police suspect that someone threw a firework bomb into their home through the letterbox. 

The neighborhood was startled by a loud bang at around 03:00 a.m. this morning. The damage to the property is significant. The front door of the house in particular is badly damaged.
