Four Teens Facing Arson & Theft Charges in Conjunction With Urbana Garage Fires

Four teens from Urbana have been arrested "in connection" with garage fires that happened on Monday, according to Frederick County Sheriff's Office authorities. The 16-year-olds were arrested on Tuesday after investigators determined that the garage fires on Singleton Terrace and Addison Woods Road were the result of arson. The sheriff's office also says that marine flares were used to light the fires, and that partial flares and safety caps to the flares were found near the scenes.

According to the sheriff's office, the suspects were identified from surveillance footage at the Walmart on Guilford Drive and assistance from the public. Investigators say that flares were shoplifted from the Walmart a few hours before the fires.

The suspects, who will not be identified because of their ages, face the following charges:

* second degree arson
* conspiracy to commit arson
* theft

The teens are in the custody of their parents.

Authorities continue to investigate the two arsons plus another arson involving a flare on McPherson Street from last Friday. Investigators are collecting evidence from the suspect vehicle but believe that the arsons were random.

Breaking News - Arsonists Caught?

Cpl. West of the Frederick Police Department has informed a VOU resident that four individuals have been arrested and charged with arson and other acts of vandalism for the events of Tuesday night. The police are certain these are the individuals responsible. All four are juveniles, three of whom are VOU residents. A press release will be sent within the hour to all major media outlets.

Suspicious Garage Fires Hit Homes on Singleton and Addison Woods Moments Apart - Vandalism Linked?

Frederick County fire officials are trying to determine whether two fires that heavily damaged nearby garages in Urbana are linked. Officials say the first fire was reported at about 10:45 p.m. Monday in the 3700 block of Singleton Terrace. About five minutes later, another fire was discovered a couple of blocks away in the 3900 block of Addison Woods Road. Officials say both fires were contained by about 11:30 p.m.   Also related, a home on Kinnerton Place had their backyard hit by a flare (homeowner found the case and gave it to the authorities). The flare hit a bush and set it on fire. The Gazette is reporting a task force has been put together to investigate the vandalism and the fires as related. The fire damage done is estimated to be $50,000 at one garage and $80,000 at the other. Two cars were also damaged.

Townhouse Fire Displaces Four Families - Causes More Than 1.5 Million In Damage

A town house fire in Urbana has displaced at least four families and killed several pets. Frederick County Chief Fire Marshal Marc McNeal says officials received a call about a fire on the deck of a town house on Winthrop Lane about 10 p.m. Sunday. A neighbor tried to put out the fire with a garden hose, but the blaze spread quickly to adjoining town houses. At least four families were displaced by the fire, and firefighters say several animals died. The fire was brought under control just before midnight.

Investigators says a charcoal grill ignited the wooden deck of an Urbana town house, starting a fire that displaced five families and killed two cats and a dog. Frederick County Chief Fire Marshal Marc McNeal said Monday that a firefighter was treated for heat-related illness while battling the blaze, which caused more than $1.5 million worth of damage Sunday night. He says it's not clear whether the grill somehow overturned onto the wooden deck or if it was simply too close to the railing.

McNeal says a total of 18 people are displaced. He says three town homes are a total loss, a fourth sustained moderate exterior damage and a fifth lost power.

J&P Pizza Closes in Urbana

Disappointed patrons were turned away - left only to read a note on the door of the establishment that stated they were forced to close New York J&P Pizza due to increased rent and failed negotiations. Supposedly, J&P plan to open a new Urbana location in the next year.  This is a huge blow to the shopping center which has struggled to find tenants.  In tight economic times, it's hard to believe Kimco (the leasing agent) would be increasing rents, given the high rates that the tenants that occupy there are already reportedly paying. 

The community reaction has been harsh and angry - with residents fearing the worst... another doctors office, a dry cleaner or maybe another bank.  Given the failure of the Common Grounds Restaurant to occupy the location now filled with a dentist office, Starbucks backing out of their deal to come to Urbana, the failure of Prime Outlets near 270 and now community favorite J&P closing, people are wondering when the village center will ever look full, finished and occupied.

Schools CLOSED Yet Again Tomorrow!

All Frederick County Public Schools are closed February 16.  All after-school and evening activities are canceled. The BOE budget hearing has been rescheduled for Feb. 22, 7:30 pm, location to be determined.  Although school lots and sidewalks are clear of snow, vehicular and pedestrian travel remains unsafe in many parts of the county. More snow overnight will create further problems for buses and students who walk to school or bus stops.  As of Feb 16, FCPS will have been closed 10 days for snow. Five days are built into the calendar. Students will make up 4 of those days on Mar 31, April 1, June 11 & June 14. On Feb 17 or 24 the BOE will discuss requesting a state waiver of the 180-day school year to address other snow days.
