Investigators say fire that destroyed vacant building was set intentionally

January 11, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A three-alarm fire in Pasadena that destroyed a vacant building and damaged two houses Saturday was set intentionally, Anne Arundel County fire investigators said yesterday.

No one has been charged in the blaze, which caused about $130,000 in damage, and no one was injured, according to fire officials. The cause is under investigation.

The fire, in a garage with a second-floor apartment in the 1400 block of Mirable Way, began on the first floor about 8: 25 p.m.

Firefighters spent about 90 minutes battling the blaze, which caused heat damage to the two houses on either side of the garage, two cars and two boats -- none of which was parked in the garage, a fire spokesman said.

Investigators are asking anyone who might have information about the fire to call the arson tip line at 410-222-TIPS (8477).
