Molo­tov cock­tail does dam­age to va­cant home

Record Observer - - NEWS -

PONDTOWN — A Molo­tov cock­tail thrown through a bed­room win­dow of a va­cant home at 2205 Pondtown Road caused mi­nor fire dam­ages, and in­ves­ti­ga­tors with the Mary­land Fire Mar­shal’s Of­fice are seek­ing in­for­ma­tion from the com­mu­nity.

The 2:37 p.m. fire at the one-story, sin­gle-fam­ily dwelling fire caused $1,000 in struc­tural dam­age and is be­ing in­ves­ti­gated as an ar­son at­tempt, ac­cord­ing to the state fire mar­shal’s of­fice. No one was in­jured.

The fire was dis­cov­ered on the fore­closed prop­erty, owned by the bank, by con­trac­tors do­ing ap­praisal work, Deputy Chief Matt Stevens said. He said the con­trac­tors no­ticed a win­dow had been bro­ken and upon en­ter­ing the prop­erty saw the re­mains of the in­cen­diar y de­vice.

The fire, lo­cated in the rear bed­room, burnt it­self out, so no fire de­part­ments re­sponded.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the in­ci­dent is asked to call in­ves­ti­ga­tors at the Up­per Eastern Of­fice of the State Fire Mar­shal in Easton at 410-822-7609.
