Early Morning Salisbury Fire Investigated as Arson

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - The Maryland State Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating an early Sunday morning fire as arson.

It happened just after 5:30 a.m. Sunday, according to fire officials, in the 600 block of North Westover Drive in Salisbury.

Fire officials say it took about 15 firefighters only about ten minutes to put the fire out, which is believed to have started on the exterior of the home. The occupant of the home, Porter Battle, was not injured. 

The fire caused an estimated $5,000 in damages, fire officials say.

The investigation into the cause is still underway, but the state fire marshal’s office says a preliminary investigation indicates the fire was incendiary in nature.

Anyone having information on this 1st degree Arson is requested to contact the Office of the State Fire Marshal at 410-713-3780 or call the ARSON HOTLINE: 1-800-492-7529.
