CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Authorities are investigating a late Wednesday night fire that caused hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage to two public works buildings in Cambridge.
The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said firefighters were called to the fire at 705 Leonard Lane at about 11:37 p.m. Wednesday. Firefighters arrived to find two single-story buildings engulfed in flames.
According to the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office, it took 37 firefighters from the Rescue (Cambridge), Trappe, Hurlock and Linkwood-Salem fire companies approximately one hour and 15 minutes to get the blaze under control.
One firefighter was taken to the hospital for treatment of an injury to the leg and released.
The fire caused an estimated $300,000 in damage to the buildings and another $100,000 in damage to its contents.
Authorities determined the fire started in the wood-covered breezeway that connected the two buildings. The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
Anyone with additional information about this incident is asked to call the Salisbury office of the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office at (410) 713-3780.
