Per­sonal prop­erty set on fire in Marydel

Record Observer - - News -

MARYDEL — On Feb. 28 at 7:23 p.m. fire­fight­ers from Marydel Vol­un­teer Fire Com­pany re­sponded to 421 Bear Pond Road in Marydel. A neigh­bor of prop­erty owner Wil­liam Knotts re­ported the fire. Ac­cord­ing to the Of­fice of the State Fire Mar­shal, or­di­nary com­bustibles were in­ten­tion­ally set on fire in veg­e­ta­tion on Knotts’ prop­erty.

It took 17 min­utes for the 20 fire­fight­ers from Mar ydel VFC to sup­press the fire. The area of ori­gin was de­ter- mined to be out­side grass/ veg­e­ta­tion where the per­sonal prop­erty was placed. The re­port states the owner of the per­sonal prop­erty (not the land owner) in­ten­tion­ally ig­nited the fire. There was no value to the items ig­nited, and it caused no dam­age to any struc­ture or prop­erty be­long­ing to the owner of the land. At the time of sup­pres­sion the fire depart­ment could not iden­tify what had been burned, thus re­quest­ing a re­sponse from the OSFM.
