CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Investigators say arson is to blame for a late Wednesday night fire in Cambridge that destroyed a vacant home and left one firefighter injured.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's office said the blaze occurred at around 11:44 p.m. at a two-story single family home located at 617 High St.

It took 65 firefighters from the Rescue (Cambridge), East New Market, Hurlock, Trappe and Oxford volunteer fire companies approximately half an hour to get the two-alarm fire under control.

Authorities said one firefighter sustained an unspecified injury and was taken to Dorchester General Hospital for treatment and then released. There were no other reported injuries.

The fire caused an estimated $90,000 in damage to the home. 

Investigators determined the fire was intentionally set. Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Salisbury Office of the Maryland State Fire Marshal at (410) 713-3780.
