Fire Marshal Requests Public’s Assistance Identifying Suspect of 3 Salisbury House Fires

The Office of the State Fire Marshal is requesting the assistance of the public, in identifying who is responsible for (3) three different Salisbury house fires on Nokomis Avenue in Salisbury, Maryland over the past week. 

The first fire occurred on Wednesday, July 21, 2021 at 1208 Nokomis Avenue in Salisbury, Maryland. Two days later, the Salisbury Fire Department was called simultaneously on Friday, July 23rd just after 10:00 PM for the other two blazes at 1204 Nokomis and 1210 Nokomis Avenue in Salisbury, MD. 

All of the homes are owned by Milford Twilley Rentals and sustained moderate fire, heat and smoke damage.  There were no injuries as a result of any of the fires. 

Smoke alarms were present in the last two fires but did not activate due to the fires being intentionally set to the outside of the home in the rear, where the perpetrator would be less noticed. 

The fires at 1204 and 1208 Nokomis caused over $50,000 each in damages, while the fire at 1210 caused over $10,000 in damage. 

All three Salisbury house fires were noticed by neighbors, who alerted the Salisbury Fire Department to respond to extinguish the flames.

No arrests have been made in any of these fires.  Deputy State Fire Marshals are asking anyone with information to call them at 410-713-3780, you may remain anonymous.

If you wish to remain anonymous but do not want to contact the fire marshals office directly, you can report any information you have to Eastern Shore Undercover via social media message or email at and we will make sure the information gets delivered to the fire marshal.
