CATONSVILLE, Md. (WJZ)– A speed camera in Baltimore County became the target of vandals.

Early Friday morning, someone set fire to a recently installed speed camera in the 400-block of S. Rolling Road.

Officers  responded to the scene at around 1:40 a.m., and firefighters extinguished the fire.

No one has been arrested.

Investigators estimate the fire did about $13,000 worth of damage.  The camera is expected to be restored in the future.

There are two other speed camera pad sites in the 500-block of S. Rolling Road.  Police say speed enforcement will continue in the area, and a camera will rotate between those two sites.

Investigators say the fire is considered a first-degree malicious burning, not an arson.  An arson applies only to the intentional burning of structures.
