Maryland Nightclub Fire Ruled Arson

A fire that tore through a popular bar and nightclub near BWI Marshall Airport earlier this month has been ruled arson, according to Anne Arundel County fire officials.

It took about 80 fire officials to get the three-alarm blaze at the Cancun Cantina on Old Telegraph Road under control Dec. 2.

Officials said about 100 patrons were able to get out safely.

Fire officials are asking anyone with information that might help in the investigation to call 410-222-7384. A separate number for those wishing to remain anonymous is 410-222-8477 (TIPS).
