State Fire Marshals Investigating Molotov Cocktail Incident

The Upper Eastern Regional Office of the Maryland State Fire Marshal is trying to identify individuals alleged to have thrown a Molotov cocktail at 307 Fairview Drive in Chestertown at 1:29 a.m. on Wednesday.

The two story single family home is located on the Queen Anne’s side of the Chester River.

“Unknown suspects intentionally threw one Molotov cocktail at the second story window of the residence in an attempt to ignite the structure,” said a statement from the OSFM’s facebook page.  “Several occupants of the home were inside the structure when the incident occurred.”

The Molotov cocktail failed to ignite and was discovered in the side yard of the residence, which was occupied at the time.

“Fortunately, the device did not break, and no one was injured,” the OSFM statement said.

The Upper Eastern Regional Office of the Maryland State Fire Marshal can be reached 410-822-7609 if anyone has information on the incident or the suspects.
