HAGERSTOWN -- A Clear Spring man charged in connection with a Sept. 19, 2007, fire at a South Martin Street home in Clear Spring saw the case against him forwarded to Washington County Circuit Court on Tuesday.
Charges were filed in September against Adam James McKee, 29, of 13242 Gruber Road in Clear Spring, after an investigation into more recent arson threat allegations, a deputy state fire marshal has said.
In the more recent incident, McKee was charged with threatening to burn down a three-story apartment building in the 400 block of Mitchell Avenue, where a woman and her family lived, Washington County District Court documents show.
The two cases are unrelated, investigators have said.
McKee was being held without bond Tuesday at the Washington County Detention Center.
Four people, including children ages 4 and 8, were in the South Martin Street home when the fire started. All got out safely.
