FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Frederick officials say three arsons believed to be related have left one person injured and another displaced.

Police say a fire was found early Friday in the bottom floor hallway of an apartment building in the 1300-block of Taney Avenue.

Authorities say one resident was taken to a hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation, and another resident has been displaced.

Earlier Friday, police say a trash can was placed against the side of a house and set on fire in the 500-block of Grant Place.

The home sustained moderate damage, but no one was injured.

Police say another trash bin leaning against a house was set on fire in the 1500-block of W. 8th Street, but did not damage the property.
