ALORTON, Ill. - The home of embattled Alorton Mayor Joann Reed is a complete loss after being firebombed overnight.

Police are looking for a man seen throwing a molotov cocktail into the home.

Mayor Reed was asleep inside at the time of the fire but was able to make it safely.

FOX 2 is told this is at least the third time her house has been firebombed.

Reed has been in trouble with the law recently. In September, she was charged with impersonating a police officer.

She also faces charges in a felony voting fraud case.
