Two vehicles that had been reported stolen were found on fire this weekend in Harford County — one in a Forest Hill cornfield and another behind the Edgewood Home Depot.
Oliver Alkire, a senior deputy state fire marshal, said both incidents are being investigated as arson, although they do not appear to be related.
At approximately 11:53 p.m. Friday, the Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company responded to a vehicle fire in a cornfield in the 2100 block of High Point Road in Forest Hill.
A 2017 Mercedes Benz C330-4 Matic sustained approximately $30,000 in damage, according to a notice of investigation from the Office of the State Fire Marshal. The owner of the cornfield reported the fire.
The owner of the Mercedes, a Prince George’s County resident, reported it stolen when contacted by authorities, Alkire said.
