Frederick Officials Investigating 3 Arsons

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.

    Oh yeah, an arsonist on the loose. Get him/her soon as Fredrick has many historic sites and an arsonist doesn’t care what goes up in flames, so long as there are flames. Do they not realize or care if someone is injured or even dies as a result of their actions – NO THEY DO NOT AS IT JUST ADDS TO THE EXCITMENT. Poor sick people!
