SALISBURY — The Salisbury Office of the Maryland State Fire Marshal is investigating two intentionally set fires in Somerset County.

The first was reported by a passerby at 12:08 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 11. A one-story frame single-family dwelling at 32708 Rehobeth Road suffered around $1,000 in damage according to the Fire Marshal’s Office.

It started in the interior of the structure and was brought under control in 30 minutes by members of the Marion Fire Department.

The second fire burned a 2021 GMC Canyon pickup truck parked at 26617 Old State Road. The owner discovered the fire and called it in at 1:21 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 13. Crisfield volunteer firefighters responded and got it under control in about 10 minutes.

The loss was valued at $10,000 plus another $500 in contents.

There were no injuries reported from either fire, but they are both “under investigation” as they were “intentionally set.” Anyone with information about either incident is urged to contact the Fire Marshal’s Office at 410-713-3780.
