CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Authorities say a firefighter was hurt while battling an early Sunday fire that heavily damaged a business in downtown Cambridge.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said the blaze broke out shortly before 4 a.m., at Jeni's Odds & Ends at 411 Washington St. It took 50 firefighters from the Rescue (Cambridge), Church Creek, Linkwood, Trappe, Oxford and East New Market fire companies approximately an hour to get the two-alarm fire under control.

Investigators said one firefighter suffered a minor injury after falling through a second-story floor during fire suppression. There were no other reported injuries.

The fire reportedly caused an estimated $100,000 in damage to the structure and $10,000 in damage to its contents.

Deputy State Fire Marshals determined the fire started in the interior of the second floor. The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.

Anyone with information in reference to this incident is asked to State Fire Marshal's Salisbury Office at (410) 713-3780.
