A 2016 Ford F-150 was completely destroyed in a fire earlier this week in Elkton, Maryland. Crews from the Singerly Fire Company quickly responded to the scene on Muddy Lane and were able to control the fire, but the truck was beyond repair. The estimated damage caused by the fire is reported to be around $35,000.
However, what makes this incident even more concerning is the fact that the vehicle was reported stolen by the Wilmington Police Department in Delaware on Sunday, September 24. Investigators believe that the fire was intentionally set, adding an element of criminal activity to the case. The incident is currently under investigation by authorities.
The Maryland Fire Marshal’s Northeast Regional Office is asking for the public’s help in gathering more information about the stolen pick-up truck or the fire itself. Anyone with information is urged to contact the office at (410) 386-3057.
