Anne Arundel County Fire Department officials are trying to identify two teenagers, in the aftermath of what appeared to be fireworks or a similar device set off in a Pasadena grocery store.

Division Chief Michael E. Cox Jr. wrote in a prepared statement that around 9 p.m. July 27, firefighters responding to a fire call arrived at Food Lion, 350 Mountain Road, to find smoke in the building. He said the store was briefly evacuated. An investigation pointed to a device that had been ignited on a shelf as the source of the smoke, Cox said. Witnesses described teenagers as "possible suspects" and a review of security video turned up footage of people similar to the descriptions, Cox said.

He said investigators are seeking help in identifying the youths, described as 14-to-15-years-old, between five feet, six inches and five feet, 10 inches tall, one wearing a black and white striped shirt, the other in a white T-shirt with a design, or words or logo on the front. People with information are asked to call 410-222-8477.
