Arson charges for man in Baltimore fire

BALTIMORE — A 35-year-old man is charged with arson for allegedly setting a fire that destroyed an automobile repair and tire shop in Baltimore last Monday.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Baltimore police arrested Jason Hicks Friday.

The fire broke out around 4 p.m. on Sept. 26 and burned through the two-story building in northwest Baltimore.

Burning tires created a plume of thick black smoke that could be seen as far away as Reisterstown and parts of Howard County.
