HEBRON, Md.- Authorities have ruled as accidental a Monday afternoon fire that caused thousands of dollars in damage to a home in Hebron.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said the blaze occurred shortly after 1 p.m. at a one-story single family home located at 519 N. Main St.

It took 15 firefighters from the Hebron, Mardela Springs and Delmar volunteer fire companies approximately 20 minutes to get the fire under control.

There were no reported injuries. The fire caused an estimated $20,000 in damage to the structure and another $5,000 in damage to its contents.

Investigators determined the fire started on the rear deck and was caused by the careless discard of smoking materials.
