FLAMMABLE DEVICE DAMAGES CUMBERLAND ARMS DOOR

A Molotov cocktail device ignited outside a door at the Cumberland Arms apartments early yesterday. The occupant of the fifth-floor apartment was able to extinguish the fire, prior to the arrival of city firefighters, but the fire did about $1500 in damage to the door and frame. The Maryland State Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating, and anyone with information is asked to contact Deputy State Fire Marshal Rocky Reed at (301)-759-5542.
