Help sought in solving arsons


August 12, 2008|By ELLIE BAUBLITZ

Investigators from the Maryland state fire marshal's office are asking the public's help with information about two arsons that occurred in Harford County over the weekend, authorities said.

The first fire was at Aberdeen High School on Paradise Road, where someone set fire to football and other sports equipment that was stored under the bleachers. A school employee who was on the grounds for another event discovered the fire about 4:15 p.m. Saturday, said Deputy State Fire Marshal Joseph G. Zurolo Jr. Damage to the equipment was estimated at $3,000.

The second fire was set in a trash bin shortly before 9:30 p.m. Sunday at Zoellers Custom Cycles, 2107 Pulaski Highway, Edgewood. A passer-by saw the fire and reported it, Zurolo said. Damage was estimated at $200 to the container.

Anyone with any information on these arsons is asked to call the Bel Air office of the state fire marshal at 410-836-4850.
