Fire and police officials are investigating an East Baltimore fire as a possible arson after finding evidence of a Molotov cocktail at the scene.
Firefighters responded to the site of the fire, a vacant home in the 1100 block of Barclay Street, at about 9:20 a.m. Sunday. Chief Kevin Cartwright, a spokesman for the Baltimore Fire Department, said one person — not an emergency worker — was treated for injuries described as non-life-threatening and was sent to the Johns Hopkins Hospital
for evaluation. It was unclear Sunday how the person was injured.
The one-alarm fire was quickly brought under control, Cartwright said. Afterward, firefighters found the potential Molotov cocktail behind the building, he said.
