Twenty firefighters from the Whiteford fire department responded to the scene and controlled the flames in minutes.

Around 6:09 a.m. Wednesday, a car matching the stolen vehicle’s description was found near the CSX railroad tracks in the area of Raspe Lane and the 1900 block of Chipper Drive.

The car had been intentionally set on fire in the passenger compartment, according to a State Fire Marshal’s notice of investigation.

The fire was out by the time firefighters arrived. The car sustained an estimated $23,000 in damage and an additional $1,000 in damage to the car’s contents.
