CAMBRIDGE, Md. - Officials with the state fire marshal's office say arson dogs found the presence of an accelerant at the scene of a three-story apartment fire in Cambridge. But, they were careful to say the case has not yet been labeled an arson.
Simply, the accelerant could have just be a fire inhibiting product in the wrong place and at the wrong time.
More than a dozen people jumped from windows to safety during the three-alarm blaze that broke out at 507 Race St. at approximately 10:46 p.m. Sunday. Officials say about 15 people were taken to hospitals with injuries sustained while escaping the fire. No one is believed to have suffered any burns.
Nearly 100 firefighters battled smoke and flames, and two were later treated for stress related injuries at Dorchester General Hospital.
