CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Authorities have ruled as accidental a late Wednesday night fire that caused thousands of dollars in damage to a Cambridge home.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said the blaze broke out shortly before midnight at a one-story single family home located at 502 Burton St.

It took 45 firefighters from the Rescue (Cambridge) and eight fire companies approximately an hour to get the two-alarm fire under control.

There were no reported injuries. The fire caused an estimated $20,000 in damage to the structure and another $10,000 in damage to its contents.

Investigators determined the fire started in the attic and was due to an electrical malfunction.

The Red Cross is assisting the home's displaced occupants.
