Macy's, a department store at Marley Station Mall in Glen Burnie, was expected to open for business today despite a deliberately set fire that caused extensive damage to a second-floor storeroom last night, an Anne Arundel County fire official said.
Damage caused by last night's two-alarm blaze was estimated at $100,000 by Capt. Michael Schaall, a county fire department arson investigator. He said evidence indicated that the fire, which was confined to a storeroom, was deliberately set and that it remained under investigation.
It was the third fire at the store this year. In January, someone set fire to a trash bin in the rear of the store, in the 7900 block of Marley Station Road. In February, a three-alarm fire struck a part of the store not frequented by customers.
