Lexington Estates Trailer Fire Arson, Woman Arrested

  • By

Deputy State Fire Marshals arrested a Lexington Park woman yesterday in connection with a mobile home fire that occurred on July 10. Jeinny Navarro, 19 years of age, was taken into custody yesterday morning at her husband’s parent’s home in New Carrollton, Prince George’s County.

Investigators determined Navarro, her husband and their 18-month old child had been living in the home. After an extensive investigation conducted by Deputy State Fire Marshals and investigators with the St. Mary’s County Bureau of Criminal Investigations determined there were on going domestic problems between the two.

On the day of the fire after an altercation with her husband Navarro barricaded herself inside the home with her child. Investigators concluded she poured an ignitable liquid throughout the interior rear of the home and then intentionally started the fire. Her husband and neighbors were able to rescue the two.

Navarro has been charged with first-degree arson, malicious burning in the first-degree and reckless endangerment. She currently is being held at the St. Mary’s County Detention Center in lieu of posting a $500,000 bond.


At 3:54 p.m., on Friday, July 10 units from Bay District and Ridge were called to the scene of a trailer fire at 20602 Treetop Road in Hermanville.

During transit, the Emergency Operations Center upgraded the fire to that of working status. Units arrived on scene to heavy visible fire emanating from the bedroom area of the trailer. Once lines were run, firefighters proceeded to perform an aggressive attack on the fire and in a matter of minutes had it knocked down.

Firefighters were advised by the homeowner that everyone was out, but firefighters confirmed that with a close inspection of the property. Firefighters also had to extinguish a brush fire that was an extension of the trailer fire.

Once the fire was down, the scene was turned over to the Maryland State Fire Marshal to determine the cause of the blaze. Three residents of the trailer, Joshua Monpennegro, Jenny Navarro and their 18 month old child were left homeless by the fire. The family was provided assistance, and the Red Cross was not required.
