2 Arrested for Starting House on Fire

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md.- Authorities say two people are facing charges following accusations that they intentionally set fire to a Salisbury home.

According to the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office, Monday's arrests of 35-year-old Jaime L. Dailey and 24-year-old Ryan J. Searcey, both of Salisbury, stemmed from a investigation into a fire that occurred Nov. 27 at a single-family home located at 6055 Gloucester Court. 

Investigators said they determined that an accelerant was used to ignite common combustibles in the kitchen, causing an estimated $10,000 in damages.

According to the State Fire Marshal's Office, the investigation concluded that Dailey, who lives at the home, and Searcey, who was her accomplice, were responsible for setting fire to the structure.

Both Dailey and Searcey were charged with first-degree arson and malicious destruction of property, and face maximum penalties of 33 years imprisonment or $52,000 in fines or both.
