FRUITLAND, Md.- Investigators are searching for the cause of a weekend fire that caused minimal damage to a home in Fruitland.  

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said the fire broke out Saturday morning in the living room of a home on Cartwright Avenue. Twenty-three firefighters responded to the scene after a neighbor reported the incident and spent 10 minutes fighting the fire, according to authorities. The smoke alarm inside the home was not working, investigators said. 

The fire caused approximately $200 in structural damage and $100 in content damage, according to investigators. There were no reported injuries.

Officials say they have no information on how the house fire occurred, but anyone with information should contact (410) 713-3780.
