    A portable speed camera in Glenelg, Md., was set on fire Saturday morning and police say the blaze was intentional.

    Howard County Police received a 911 call from a newspaper deliveryman around 5 a.m., stating an electrical box was on fire in the 14000 block of Burntwoods Road near Glenelg High School.

    When fire crews arrived, they discovered it wasn’t an electrical box, but a speed camera that was ablaze.

    Arson investigators determined the fire had been intentionally set.

    The damaged equipment has been removed and will be replaced in time for the start of school on Monday morning.
