Arson Fire Heavily Damages Maryland Church

April 13, 2012

Baltimore County fire officials say a blaze that dry conditions and wind help spread at a church was deliberately set.

The three-alarm blaze caused about $400,000 in damage to Pleasant Zion Baptist Church in Dundalk. Investigators say the fire was set in two sheds behind the church.

Crews arrived on the scene about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Low humidity and high winds allowed the fire to spread quickly, engulfing the entire structure.

There were no injuries.
