CLARKSVILLE, Md. (WJZ)—Howard County police detectives are offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information about a September arson case that has been classified as attempted murder.

Police and firefighters were called to a fire just after midnight Sept. 8 in the 5000-block of Ten Oaks Road in Clarksville. Three adults and two small children all escaped without injury.

The homeowner told police that just after midnight, he and his wife detected a strange odor in the house. They saw smoke and alerted another male family member and his children, ages 3 and 1, that there was a fire.

Through investigation, detectives believe the fire was intentionally set. Police determined that an accelerant was poured onto the home’s front porch and ignited.

The family escaped through a side door.

Detectives believe that the people inside the home may have been targeted. A possible motive is unclear at this time.

Police need help in identifying the person or people responsible. Anyone with information is urged to call police at 410-313-STOP.
