Maryland Fire Marshal Calls Medical Clinic Blaze Suspicious

November 30, 2010

Maryland fire investigators say a blaze that destroyed a medical clinic in a historic Frederick farmhouse is considered suspicious.

Deputy State Fire Marshal Bruce Bouch said Friday morning that an arson dog detected accelerants at the scene of the Thanksgiving Day fire in the farmhouse in the 8100 block of Runnymeade Drive. Officials say two firefighters sustained minor injuries while battling the blaze.

Bouch says investigators have been in touch with the owner, but he is out of the state.

The clinic closed earlier this year after Dr. Nicola M. Tauraso’s medical license was suspended.
