A fire Thursday evening in a Glen Burnie apartment complex was set intentionally, according to the Anne Arundel County Fire Department.

The fire occurred just after 7 p.m. in a second-floor storage area in the Windbrooke Apartments, in the 7900 block of Silent Shadow Court, a department statement Friday said.

The small fire was contained by sprinklers and was quickly extinguished, but fire investigators have determined that the flames were started on purpose.

The fire department asks anyone with information about the fire to call investigators at 410-222-TIPS (8477). Callers may remain anonymous.
