MARYDEL, Md.- A 17-year-old boy has been charged with making a false alarm call that led to firefighters responding to a non-existent fire in Marydel.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said the incident occurred at around 1:30 a.m. July 12, when the teen notified dispatchers at the Caroline County 911 Center of a possible fire in the area of Zion Road in Marydel.

Firefighters from the Marydel Volunteer Fire Department responded to the area and did
not locate any evidence of a fire in the area.

After collecting information from the 911 center, investigators determined the teen was responsible for making the calls. Investigators said that during an interview with the teen, he  confessed to the incident and apologized for his actions. After being charged with the aforementioned offense, he was released to the custody of his parents pending action by the Caroline County Department of Juvenile Services.
