An incendiary device was ignited on the front porch of a home in the 1000 block of Security Road near Hagerstown on Sunday, the Maryland State Fire Marshal’s Office said.

The fire, which was reported at 8:24 p.m. Sunday by a passer-by, caused no damage, according to a fire marshal’s office news release.

Authorities said a witness reported seeing three juveniles flee the area on foot toward the Washington Gardens apartment complex.
