February 26, 2013

Juveniles caused $100 in damages when they ignited combustibles and dry leaves under a pavilion Monday at Washington County Regional Park off Mt. Aetna Road, officials said.

The fire, which was reported by a passerby at 5:24 p.m., spread from under the 20-foot-by-50-foot pavilion to a wood cabinet, according to a Fire Marshal’s Office news release.

Authorities said it took nine firefighters from the Funkstown Volunteer Fire Co. five minutes to bring the fire under control.

The property was owned by the Washington County government, the release said.
