Baltimore County Firefighter Indicted in Arson after Polygraph

A Baltimore County firefighter is facing federal charges that he set a blaze which he later helped fight, according to court documents.

While taking a polygraph test to apply for a Secret Service job in 2011, English Consul Volunteer Fire Association member Nicholas Hannigan, 27, "grew noticeably nervous" when asked about criminal activity such as arson and confessed to his role in a blaze in Halethorpe, according to The Baltimore Sun.
