Lauren Goodger feared a child had died after her salon was petrol bombed by yobs last week
Lauren Goodger feared a child had died after her salon was attacked last week.
The 'Only Way Is Essex' star - whose Lauren's Way store was petrol bombed by yobs last Wednesday (15.02.12), less than 24 hours after it opened to the public - was worried the family who live in the flat above the beauty studio could have been caught in the blaze.
She said: "Someone could have been killed. There's a child upstairs who could have died and it's just horrible to think someone was prepared to do this - to get me - without a thought for anyone's life."
After spending "months" preparing for the launch of the salon, Lauren admitted she doesn't feel safe and feels she was "targeted" by the attackers due to the fame she has found on the ITV2 reality show.
She added in an interview with The Sun newspaper: "Me and the girls spent months preparing for the launch and it's devastating this has happened.
"I don't feel safe. I don't want to be on my own and it's terrifying to think I was targeted."
Meanwhile, the 25-year-old beauty explained she was enjoying a quiet evening at the cinema when her 'TOWIE' co-star Frankie Essex called her, "screaming", to tell her the shop was ablaze.
Lauren said: "I was in the cinema when Frankie called me, screaming my salon was on fire. I just bolted and drove straight there.
"Everything was cordoned off with firefighters and police everywhere. The family from upstairs were on the street and I could see the salon was just black and full of smoke."
