Damage to the vehicle was estimated at $4,000, and damage to its contents at $300.
Approximately a half-hour earlier, five firefighters from the same department responded to a residence on the 800 block of Leeswood Road in Bel Air for a report of a blaze in a 2001 Nissan Altima. That fire was also brought under control in about 20 minutes, and damages were also estimated at $4,000 to the vehicle and $300 to its contents.
On Monday, two Molotov Cocktails were tossed at a residence on the 2900 block of Shelley Court in Abingdon, the State Fire Marshal’s Office said.
The devices missed the home and landed on the ground, where they were found by a neighbor at approximately 11:43 p.m. Five firefighters from the Abingdon fire company responded to the scene. No damage was sustained by the structure.
Two days before, an accidental fire damaged a walk-in freezer at the Greek Village restaurant on Baltimore Pike in Bel Air on Saturday, according to the State Fire Marshal’s Office.
The blaze was detected by the restaurant’s fire alarm company at about 6 p.m. Five firefighters from the Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company found the blaze under control upon their arrival. Damages were estimated at approximately $5,000 to the structure and $1,000 to its contents, the Fire Marshal’s Office said. The cause of the blaze was ruled accidental.
