CHESTERTOWN, Md.- Authorities are searching for the cause of an early Monday fire that heavily damaged a home in Chestertown.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said the fire happened at around 4:30 a.m. at a two-story home located at 8500 Broad Neck Road.  

Forty firefighters from the Chestertown Volunteer Fire Company and surrounding companies responded to the 2-alarm blaze. It took them approximately half an hour to get the fire under control.

There were no reported injuries but a pet dog perished in the fire. The fire caused an estimated $100,000 in damage to the structure and another $60,000 in damage to its contents.

Investigators determined the fire started in the interior of the first-floor living room but what sparked the blaze remains unknown.

The American Red Cross is assisting the homeowner.
