CAMBRIDGE, Md. The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office has ruled as arson an early Friday morning house fire that occurred in Cambridge.

At around 12:35 a.m., firefighters responded to 455 High St. for reports of a house fire. Deputy State Fire Marshals determined the one-alarm fire began on the second floor. The single-family home had been under renovation at the time of the blame.

According to investigators, Friday's fire broke out in the same community that experienced four other intentionally set fires beginning in late March. All of the fires have occurred in less than a half mile of each other. They were:

  • Wednesday, March 20, 11:44 p.m., 617 High St., $90,000 in damage
  • Tuesday, March 26, 8:10 p.m., 601 Cross St., $15,000 in damage

  • Friday , April 5, 10:17 p.m., 812 Fairmount Ave., $95,000 in damage

Anyone who lives in Cambridge with information about these fires is asked to contact the Lower Eastern Shore Region Office of the State Fire Marshal at (410) 713-3783 or the Arson Hotline at 1-800-492-7529.
