Posted: Updated:
PRINCESS ANNE, Md.- The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office is investigating what sparked a mobile home fire in Princess Anne that left a 64-year-old man in critical condition.

Firefighters responded to the call around 12:17 a.m. Wednesday at a 12-foot by 50-foot home located on the 11000 block of Warwick Lane. Authorities said the fire was discovered by the owner.

The one-alarm blaze took 25 firefighters from Princess Anne, Mt. Vernon, Deal Island and Allen approximately 35 minutes to get under control.

The 64-year-old victim was taken Peninsula Regional Medical Center before transferred to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore where he remains in critical condition.

The fire caused an estimated $20,000 in damage to the structure and another $10,000 in damage to its contents, investigators said.

Deputy state fire marshals determined the fire started in a front bedroom, but its cause remains under investigation.
