Investigators believe someone set fire Monday night to the front porch of a vacant two-story house in the 4600 block of Strauss Avenue in Indian Head, the Maryland State Fire Marshal reported.
No one was hurt in the fire, which was first discovered by a passing motorist around 8:53 p.m. Dec. 10, but it did cause an estimated $150,000 in damage.
Volunteer fire departments in Bryans Road, Potomac Heights, Accokeek, Waldorf, Marbury and La Plata sent 45 firefighters to the scene. It took them 20 minutes to control the flames.
Anyone with information on the fire should call the fire marshal’s office at 443-550-6833.
