20150512_172416Deputy State Fire Marshals have arrested a teen for setting fire to the home in which he and his family resided in.

Dallas Terry, 18 of Scotland, was taken into custody this morning at the Washington DC detention center. An investigation into the cause of the fire determined that it had been intentionally set after an altercation with his father and brother.

The fire occurred on May 12, 2015 just before 5 p.m., investigators from the State Fire Marshal’s Office determined that an ignitable liquid had been poured throughout the kitchen of the home and set on fire.

The fire caused over $125,000 in damages to the three story single family home and its contents. The family was displaced as a result of the fire.

Numerous firefighters responded to the scene and controlled the fire in approximately fifteen minutes without injury. Deputies determined that Terry had an altercation with his father which involved him using several knives. After his father and brother fled the home Terry then set the fire while a female occupant was still in the upper floor of the home.

Terry has been charged with first degree arson, first and second degree assault, reckless endangerment, first and second degree malicious burning, and arson threat. He was a juvenile at the time of the fire and has been waived to adult status as a result of the charges.

He is currently being held at the St. Mary’s County Detention Center pending a bond review hearing at this time. The Saint Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the investigation.

    $125,000 in damage!

    Where does anyone see anything worth $125,000??

    And where is the 3-story home? Are they counting a basement?

      That includes the house and it’s contents. Pretty sure that house is worth well over $125,000, so this isn’t far fetched.

    First of all any 17 year old who acts like this needs their a$$ whipped!!! His butt should get charged as an adult!! Who displaces their own family!!! Totally DISRESPECTFUL and I hope he gets everything he deserves!!!! Word on the streets is he has a kid on the way…HORRIBLE HORRIBLE…bring a baby into this world while your ass is sitting in PRISON where you belong!! But I guess some should pick their significant others better and not become a parent when your not ready! And others should not burn down their parents home and want to have a knife fight with your dad. You better be glad your not my kid!!! Good luck in Prison
