Oak Street Fire Hospitalizes City Man

December 12th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

A fire at 50 Oak Street in Cumberland last night injured two men, with one suffering 2nd and 3rd degree burns and being transferred to the Bay View Burn Center.  Cumberland Fire Department responded just after 10 PM at the residence of Ernest Dolly, Jennifer Dolly and Jordan Preston. 

The Maryland State Fire Marshal’s office says someone took a gas can, placed it on the porch and set it on fire.  The occupant and a passerby both received burns trying to remove the can from the porch.  Damage was limited to the exterior porch area, and estimated at $1500. 

Anyone with information is requested to contact the fire marshal’s office at 301-766-3880.
