STEVENSVILLE — Authorities say the shop manager at an auto body repair business in Queen Anne’s County has been charged with setting a fire that destroyed one car and damaged another.

The Office of the State Fire Marshal said in a news release that 49-year-old Michael Hart of Grasonville was arrested Thursday. He is charged with arson and other offenses.

Officials say the fire occurred on July 16 at Duty’s Auto Body in Stevensville. Authorities say the blaze caused $8,000 in damage when it destroyed a car at the shop.

Online court records do not list a lawyer for Hart.
