Several fires at Fox Hollow Coffee in Elkton were intentionally set.

It happened Thursday morning at the shop at 732 E. Pulaski Highway. An employee showed up for work and walked into a smoke-filled store. The employee immediately called 911.

Firefighters arrived but most of the fires had put themselves out. The flames melted a water pipe, which helped douse the fire.

It was determined that multiple fires were set on purpose and police are now looking for suspects.

The coffee house has about $10,000 worth of damage. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Northeast Regional Office at 410-836-4844.
