PITTSVILLE, Md.- Investigators are searching for the cause of a fire that caused tens of thousands of dollars in damage to a home in eastern Wicomico County.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said a neighbor reported the blaze at around 6:30 p.m. Friday, at a two-story single family home located at 7955 Pittsville Road in Pittsville.

Thirty firefighters from the Pittsville, Parsonsburg, Salisbury Station 2 and the Willards fire companies responded to the scene and got the fire under control in about 15 minutes.

There were no reported injuries. The fire caused an estimated $90,000 in damage to the home.

Investigators said a smoke alarm was present but it did not activate because it had no batteries.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the State Fire Marshal's Salisbury office at (410) 713-3780.
