Accidental Easton House Fire Leads To Two People In Handcuffs

Posted: Updated:

EASTON, Md. - An apartment house fire in Easton has been ruled accidental, and landed two people in handcuffs on assault charges. The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office says the fire started just after 11:20 PM on Monday night, inside of a kitchen wall, of the Goldsborough Street home.

The blaze reportedly took 30 firefighters from six area departments, 45 minutes to control. Total damages are estimated at $60,000. No one was injured during the incident. Officials say the cause of the fire was an electrical failure in the kitchen wall, and has been ruled as accidental.

Easton Police say they were meeting with the resident of the home, 48-year-old Kevin Suite, when 38-year-old Bobbie Ann Renehan arrived at the scene, walked right past officers, and apparently started assaulting Suite. Renehan had to be physically removed and taken into custody.

Police say that Suite repeatedly tried to reenter the residence, but was told he couldn't go inside, and at one point reportedly tried to go through one of the Officers to get back inside. Suite was also taken into custody, and Police say once he was at headquarters, he spit several times on the cameras inside the holding cell and walls.

Renehan was charged with 2nd degree assault. Suite was charged with 2nd degree assault, fail to obey a lawful order, alcoholic beverage/intoxication endanger safety & malicious destruction of property less than $1,000. Both Renehan and Suite were release on their own recognizance.
