SPRINGDALE, Ohio -- Springdale fire officials released an updated description Friday of the suspect in the firebombing of a Grandin Avenue home last month.

The man threw a glass bottle containing gasoline and a lit cloth-type wick through a window of the home. It landed in the living room and caused an explosion, according to the Springdale Fire Department.

Officials are still working to identify the man. They said he's in his 40s or 50s, white, 5'8" to 5'10" and not clean shaven. He drove away in a silver Dodge Dakota pickup truck estimated to be a late 1980s or early '90s model year. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040 or the Springdale Police Department at 513-346-5760.
