Man Arrested for Setting Grandmother's Mobile Home on Fire

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md.- A 29-year-old Salisbury man is facing arson and related charges following accusations that he intentionally set his grandmother's mobile home on fire.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said the incident occurred shortly before 6 p.m. April 10, at a mobile home located at 27596 Walnut Tree Road south of Salisbury. According to investigators, Brian D. Gribble was responsible for deliberately setting a decorative wreath on fire in the living room. Both Gribble and his grandmother, who were inside the home at the time of the blaze, were able to escape the home uninjured. 

Approximately 15 firefighters responded to the one alarm fire from the Fruitland, Allen and Salisbury Station #1 fire departments and extinguished the small blaze within five minutes.

Damages to the structure and contents were estimated at $700.

Gribble was served an arrest warrant at his home on Friday and charged with first-degree arson, second-degree malicious burning, malicious destruction of property and reckless endangerment. He transported to the Wicomico County Detention Center without incident.

No motive has been established at this time, investigators said.
