BALDWIN -- Arson was the cause of a blaze that destroyed a 150-year-old stone barn early yesterday, the state fire marshal's office said.

The fire in the 2900 block of Green Road, near Baldwin and the Baltimore County border, caused an estimated $150,000 damage to the structure and its contents. One firefighter was slightly hurt, but two horses being boarded on the farm were in the pasture and were not injured.

Deputy Fire Marshal W. Faron Taylor said the owner of the barn, Kenneth R. Lindyberg, discovered the blaze about 1: 50 a.m. after hearing a muffled explosion. It took about 45 volunteer firefighters from Harford and Baltimore counties 2 1/2 hours to bring the blaze under control.
