CAMBRIDGE – The Maryland State Fire Marshal’s Office is actively seeking help from the public for information leading to the identification of the person or persons who intentionally set fire to a Cambridge church early the morning of Sept. 11.

At approximately 7:26 a.m. that day, Rescue Fire Company was alerted to respond to the 800 Block of Robbins Street, Cambridge for an extinguished fire. Upon their arrival at the Refuge Temple Church of God, fire personnel found the remains of a fire that had been extinguished by members of the church.

Based on the nature of the incident, both the Cambridge Police Department and the State Fire Marshal were called to the scene.

The Office of the State Fire Marshal conducted an origin and cause investigation. The fire was determined to have originated at the front entrance doors of the one-story, metal-built church.

Further investigation determined that the fire was intentionally set. During the investigation, several items of evidence were collected in an effort to identify the person or persons responsible.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is assisting with the investigation, a statement from the fire marshal said.

If anyone has information regarding this incident please contact the Lower Eastern Region Office of the State Fire Marshal at 410-713-3780.
