On Wednesday, July 31st,  at 450am, the Anne Arundel County Fire Department was dispatched to a house fire at 635 Binsted Road in Glen Burnie.

First arriving firefighters reported fire around a window on the front of the one-story, single-family dwelling located on Binsted Road. Firefighters brought the fire under control in about 10 minutes. Members of the Anne Arundel County Fire Department Fire and Explosives Investigation Unit have determined that the fire is incendiary (not accidental) in nature.

Damage is estimated to be $30,000. One smoke alarm was present in the home; it did not activate because it was missing a battery.

While on the scene, an unidentified male approached firefighters and said he started the fire. The information was promptly relayed to the Anne Arundel County Police. County Police were able to locate and identify the person as the homeowner.
