FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Frederick County fire investigators are looking into three separate fires, including a car that was intentionally set ablaze in a motel parking lot.

The county fire marshal’s office says the fires occurred during a span of six hours. The first happened late Friday night in Emmitsburg, where a detached garage caught fire. The cause is undetermined.

The burning vehicle was found early Saturday morning in the parking lot at the Travelodge in Frederick. Investigators determined it was a case of arson.

The third fire was accidental and damaged a house in Frederick. No one was injured.
