Car arson on Virginia Avenue

A 2021 Mazda 6 is gutted by a fire police believe was intentionally set inside the car.

CAMBRIDGE — A car stolen from a house Sunday night in Cambridge was found burning a short distance away.

The vehicle was reported to be stolen from the victims driveway and discovered to be on fire a short time later, according the Maryland State Fire Marshal’s Office.

A passerby discovered the fire at 9:48 p.m. on Oct. 10 on the 100 block of Virginia Avenue, and police believe the fire that eventually destroyed the 2021 Mazda 6 was intentionally set inside the vehicle.

Ten firefighters from Rescue Fire Company extinguished the blaze, and the fire marshal estimated the fire did $20,000 damage.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Salisbury Office of the Maryland State Fire Marshal at 410-713-3780.
