BROOKLAWN, NJ--(February 19, 2020)--Long-time Brooklawn resident  Yvonne  Spadora was the victim of mean spirited hoodlums, according to FoxNews 29 report.  Surveillance video (see below) shows two explosions outside of Mrs. Spadora around 10PM Saturday, February 15. The  94-year-old woman, who was asleep at the time of the incident, has lived in her Brooklawn residence since 1957.

According to police, the fireworks were thrown from two moving cars.

Brooklawn police said the explosions started a fire in a bush outside of Spadora's home. Police woke up Spadora as a neighbor used a hose to put out the fire.

“After I knocked on the door, it was hard for her to even get to the door, so if the house caught on fire God forbid anything could have happened to her. We were just seconds away from a catastrophe," Brooklawn Police investigator Raymond McKenney said.

Police said they think one of the cars is a dark color Dodge Charger. Police don't believe Spadora was targeted.
