March 22, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A juvenile was being questioned after state fire marshals determined that a two-alarm house fire yesterday in Harford County was deliberately set.

Fire marshals said the blaze began about 8 a.m. in an attached garage and caused extensive damage to the two-story, single-family home owned by Richard and Barbara Ronchi in the 700 block of Fairwind Drive in Bel Air.

About 40 firefighters from Bel Air, Abingdon and Fallston had the fire under control in about 40 minutes, fire marshals said.

No one was injured, and damage was estimated at $100,000, fire marshals said.
