ALLEN, Md.- Authorities are investigating the cause of a Monday night fire that destroyed a sailboat moored in a Wicomico County boatyard.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said members of the Allen Volunteer Fire Company responded to a call they received at around 9 p.m. about a 26-foot sailboat on fire in the Wicander Boatyard, located at 3172 Windrows Way in Allen.

It took 15 firefighters about 15 minutes to put out the blaze. There were no reported injuries. The boat reportedly sustained approximately $50,000 in damage, with another $2,000 in damage to its contents.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Lower Eastern Regional Office of the Maryland State Fire Marshal at (410) 713-3780.
