Molotov cocktail thrown into Ogden, Utah, church

OGDEN, Utah (AP) - Federal officials in Utah are investigating after a Molotov cocktail was thrown through the window of a church in Ogden.

The Deseret News reports ( http://bit.ly/13ZQPQK) the device was thrown into a meetinghouse of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sometime Sunday night.

Ogden Fire Department Deputy Chief Eric Bauman says the remains of the failed weapon were found Monday by a maintenance worker. Bauman says it caused about $1,000 in damage to the kitchen of the church.

The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are getting involved because the target was a church. The Ogden City Fire Marshal also is investigating.
