Suspected arson caused about $25,000 in damage to a car in Bel Air on New Year's Eve, and the incident is under investigation.

Around 1:45 a.m. Thursday, five Bel Air Volunteer firefighters arrived in the 1300 block of Sheridan Place to quell flames in a vehicle, according to the notice of investigation from the Maryland State Fire Marshal.

Firefighters controlled flames in the 1977 Chevrolet Corvette within just five minutes. Harford County Sheriff's deputies and Deputy State Fire Marshals arrived at the scene to investigate.

Officials determined the fire started in the passenger compartment of the car and it may have been arson. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Bel Air Office at the 410-836-4844.

Joppa fire

A cozy fire turned disastrous on the afternoon of Dec. 29 when flames spread from the fireplace in a Joppa home.

Around 12:15 p.m., 30 firefighters from Joppa-Magnolia, Fallston, Kingsville, Bel Air and Aberdeen Proving Ground volunteer fire companies arrived in the 1000 block of Donnawood Drive to combat flames inside the home, according to a notice of investigation from the Maryland State Fire Marshal.

Firefighters controlled the fire in about 10 minutes, but not before flames and smoke caused about $80,000 damage to the single-story home and $20,000 in damage to the building's contents.

Deputy State Fire Marshals believe the fire started accidentally, originating in the first-floor fire place and spreading due to a crack in the firebox assembly, according to the notice.

Six firefighters from Perryville controlled the flames within 10 minutes, but not before the fire caused $8,000 in damage. Perryville police arrived at the scene to assist.

The preliminary cause of the fire is under investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact the Bel Air Office of the State Fire Marshal at 410-836-4844.
