SALISBURY, Md.- Authorities say arson is to blame for a Wednesday morning house fire in Salisbury that displaced four people. 

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said the fire broke out at around 2:25 a.m. at a home at 628 Liberty St. Twenty-five firefighters from Salisbury stations 2 and 16, as well as the Parsonsburg, Delmar and Hebron fire companies responded and got the fire under control in about half an hour.

There were no reported injuries. The fire caused an estimated $25,000 in damage to the structure and $5,000 in damage to its contents.

Investigators determined the fire was intentionally set and started on the front porch before spreading.

The four people who were displaced are being assisted by the Red Cross.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the State Fire Marshal's Office in Salisbury at (410) 713-3780.
