Car Catches Fire Following Accident

An occupant is arrested on unrelated charges.


Big Pool, Md (KM) There were no injuries from a vehicle fire following an accident on Tuesday in Washington County.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal’s Office says fire fighters from the Clear Spring Volunteer Fire Company responded to 11,079 Big Pool Road for a Toyota four-door car on fire, but the blaze was out by the time personnel arrived. Damage is estimated at $5,000.

Investigators say the fire originated in the engine compartment and was due to electrical components catching fire following an accident.

An occupant of the vehicle identified as Daniel Murray was arrested by Maryland State Police on charges unrelated to the fire.
