LAUREL, Del. – The Delaware State Fire Marshal says a Wednesday fire that caused tens of thousands of dollars of damage to a barn in Laurel is accidental in nature.

The fire happened at 2:15 p.m. on Wooten Road.

Officials said the fire was caused when sparks from a cutting torch ignited combustible materials.

Fire personnel arrived on scene Wednesday afternoon to find heavy fire showing.

The Laurel Fire Department, assisted by Delmar and Gumboro Fire Companies extinguished the flames, according to the state fire marshal.

There were no reported injuries.

Total fire damage was estimated at $95,000.
