Salisbury Woman Arrested for Arson

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md.- Deputy Maryland State Fire Marshals have arrested a 58-year-old Salisbury woman accused of intentionally setting fire to her home.

Debra Baldwin was taken into custody at her home on Monday afternoon and charged with first-degree arson and first-degree malicious burning.

Investigators said Baldwin's arrest stemmed from a Sunday night fire that she set in the first floor master bedroom of her one-and-a-half story home on the 400 block of South Park Drive.

Baldwin received second-degree burns to both hands after she allegedly used an ignitable liquid to start the fire, authorities said. She was taken to Peninsula Regional medical Center in Salisbury where she was treated and released.

Damage to the structure and its contents was estimated at $1,500. Approximately 15
firefighters from the Salisbury Fire Department responded to the scene and contained the
small fire within three minutes.

Following her arrest, Baldwin was ordered held in the Wicomico County Detention Center in lieu of $20,000 bond. If convicted of the aforementioned charges, Baldwin faces penalties of up to 35 years imprisonment or $55,000 in fines or both.
