SALISBURY, Md. - A fire investigation in Salisbury took an interesting turn, as officials are moving forward with an arson investigation.
Officials say the 600 block of Dawn Court was significantly damaged when a fire was started yesterday.
Today investigators announced that the cause was incendiary, meaning someone meant to cause it.
The homeowner, Robany Pittman has two children, one son in a wheelchair who is nonverbal. Pittman is also a habitat homeowner.
We're told she hasn't been able to go back into the house until investigators find a definitive cause of the fire.
But Habitat for Humanity is stepping up and asking support from the community.
They are collecting donations like clothing and school supplies.
Food items or gifts cards are also needed to assist the family, as they expect to eat out more.
We're told community members are already helping out during this difficult time.
Donations can be dropped off at the Habitat ReStore Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
They are hoping to set up an account at a local bank so you can also donate to the family directly.
As for Christmas, Lowe's has asked to adopt the family for the holiday.
