BALTIMORE (AP) - Fire officials say a blaze was deliberately set in the transaction drawer of a ticket booth at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

The State Fire Marshal’s Office said in a news release Monday that someone ignited materials put inside the transaction drawer of window 15 at the baseball stadium.

Baltimore firefighters quickly put out the blaze shortly after it was reported about 8:40 p.m. Sunday. Officials say the heat caused distortion of the drawer, security door, drawer assembly and the speaker system on the window was damaged. Damage was estimated at $15,000.

Investigators say video surveillance showed four people in the area at the time of the fire. They were seen running away as the light from flames could be seen on camera.
