WICOMICO COUNTY, Md.- Deputy State Fire Marshals are investigating two separate arson fires that happened Friday morning. Fire officials say both properties are owned by the same individuals. 

The first fire was reported at 3:19 a.m. at a two-story house on White Pond Drive in Salisbury. Fire officials say the fire caused about $100,000  in damage.

The fire department says one person who was inside was alerted to the fire by his smoke alarms and was able to get out unharmed. No other injuries were reported.

The second fire was reported at 5:11 a.m. and involved an unoccupied mobile home on Madeline Circle in Parsonsburg. Fire officials say this fire caused an estimated $3,000.

The fire marshal says there were no fire alarms in the mobile home, but a neighbor noticed the fire and called 911.

Investigators conducted extensive origin and cause investigations on both fire scenes and have determined that both fires are arson. The Lower Eastern Region Office of the State Fire Marshal is urging anyone who may have information in reference to these fires to contact them at 410-713-3780.
