Mount Rainier Fires Are Under Investigation

MEDIA CONTACT: Mark E. Brady, Chief Spokesperson, 240-508-7930, mebrady@co.pg.md.us

The Prince George’s County Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department’s Office of the Fire Marshal in conjunction with the Mount Rainier Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) are aggressively investigating a series of fires in the Mount Rainier community. Evidence has been collected from each scene.  At this time there is no indication of any connection between these incidents and the fatal fire that occurred last week in the City of Hyattsville.

Citizens and residents are encouraged to be vigilant, leave outside lights on and report any suspicious or unusual activity to 911 immediately or to the Mount Rainer Police Department at 301-985-6565.

Anyone with information about these fires are encouraged to call the Fire/EMS Department’s Arson Hotline at 301-77-ARSON.
