PRINCESS ANNE, Md.- Authorities say unattended cooking is to blame for a weekend fire that caused thousands of dollars in damage to a home in Princess Anne.  

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said that at around 5 p.m. Saturday, fire broke out in the kitchen of the home located  at 30695 Division St.  

Firefighters from the Princess Anne volunteer fire companies responded to the scene and got the fire under control in approximately five minutes.  

There were no reported injuries. The fire caused an estimated $10,000 in damage to the structure and another $500 in damage to its contents, authorities said. 

Investigators said the home, which was equipped with a working smoke alarm, has been ruled accidental.
