There has been a suspected arson fire in Somerset County.
It is the second such fire in the last two weeks.
But, the Maryland State Fire Marshall Office says the blaze in Eden does not appear to be connected to the more than 70 arson fires that have struck neighboring Accomack County since mid-November.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that no one was injured in the fire which only affected a small portion of the porch.
Authorities said that there was an odor from some kind of accelerant such as diesel or kerosene.
Last week a mobile home caught fire on Greenwood School Road.
