CHESTERTOWN, Md.- Authorities are investigating an early Sunday fire that caused tens of thousands of dollars in damage to a home in Chestertown.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said the fire broke out shortly after 4 a.m. at the unoccupied single home located at 27867 Morgnec Road.

It took 30 firefighters from the Kennedyville Volunteer Fire Company about 30 minutes to get the fire under control.

There were no smoke or fire alarms present in the home, according to Deputy State Fire Marshals, who are still investigating the cause of the fire.
