CAMBRIDGE, Md.- The Maryland State Fire Marshal is investigating what caused a four-alarm fire to break out at the Salvation Army thrift store in Cambridge on Monday afternoon.

Officials said it took three hours and more than 125 firefighters to get the flames under control. One firefighter was treated at a local hospital for heat exhaustion.

According to investigators, the fire started on the first floor of the building just after 1 p.m. The State Fire Marshal's office said customers in the store notified employees about the fire, and everyone was able to safely evacuate the store. No other injuries were reported.

The store suffered heavy fire, smoke and water damage. The State Fire Marshal said the fire caused about $500,000 in damages.

Anyone inside the building before the fire broke out is asked to contact the Salisbury office of the State Fire Marshal at (410) 713-3780.
