County jail hit by 2 fires, 1 set by inmate

Two small fires at the Anne Arundel County Detention Center in Annapolis caused minimal damage to a cell and the kitchen, a fire department spokesman said.

A small grease fire started in the kitchen shortly after 6 a.m. yesterday. Firefighters arrived to find the blaze already extinguished.

Wednesday afternoon, an inmate set fire to papers in his cell in Cell Block 8, said Capt. Gary Sheckells, fire department spokesman. The captain said that firefighters were called to the Jennifer Road jail about 4:50 p.m., but found the fire out and little or no property damage. Charges were pending.
