SALISBURY, Md.- Investigators say one person had to be taken to the hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation following a weekend house fire in Salisbury.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said the blaze broke out at around 1:30 a.m. Saturday at a one story home located at 29074 Santa Fe Drive. 

Twenty firefighters from the Salisbury and Hebron fire departments responded to the call and got the fire under control in about 20 minutes.

According to investigators, one occupant was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center for treatment of smoke inhalation and released. There were no other reported injuries.

The fire caused an estimated $80,000 in damage to the structure and another $30,000 in damage to its contents.

Deputy State Fire Marshals determined the fire started in the living room but the cause of the blaze remains under investigation. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Lower Eastern Region of the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office at (410) 713-3780.
