SALISBURY, Md.- Authorities say an early Monday fire caused thousands of dollars in damage to a Salisbury home.
The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said the blaze broke out at around 2:47 a.m., at a one-story home located at 706 Richmond Ave. It took 20 firefighters from all three Salisbury fire stations approximately 10 minutes to control the flames.
There were no reported injuries. The fire caused an estimated $18,000 in damage to the structure, and another $2,000 in damage to its contents.
Deputy State Fire Marshals determined the fire started in a front bedroom but the cause of the fire remains under investigation. Investigators said a smoke alarm was present, but did not activate.
The American Red Cross is assisting the home's displaced occupants.
Anyone with additional information about the fire is asked to contact the Salisbury Office of the State Fire Marshal at (410) 713-3780.
