Hagerstown woman charged with arson


HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — A Hagerstown woman has been charged with intentionally setting fire to her home twice in one week.

Online court records show 46-year-old Anne Donlon of 242 Summit Ave. has been charged with two counts of first-degree arson and four counts of reckless endangerment resulting from the incidents Tuesday and Thursday.

Firefighters responded to Donlon's home Thursday around 9 p.m. for a report of an intentionally set fire, but firefighters found the fire had been put out by the time they arrived. Fire Marshal Doug DeHaven says firefighters responded to the same home two days earlier for a similar incident. He says both fires were set in the same room and caused minimal damage. No injuries were reported in either incident.

Donlon did not appear to have a listed phone number.
