CAMBRIDGE, Md. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a man on arson charges after police say he intentionally lit a home on fire.

The Office of the State Fire Marshal says 31-year-old Reginald Allen, Jr. was arrested Wednesday. Fire officials say the home was set ablaze on Sep. 27 in Cambridge.

Fire officials say two people were inside the building when the fire broke out. One victim was taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Authorities say the other person was not injured.

Fire officials say the blaze caused about $40,000 in damages.

If convicted of all charges, officials say Allen faces up to 211 years in prison and $113,500 in fines.



Allen is currently being held at Dorchester County Detention Center without bond. It isn’t immediately clear if he has an attorney.
