FEDERALSBURG, Md.- Investigators are searching for the cause of a weekend fire that caused thousands of dollars in damage to a home in Federalsburg.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said the blaze occurred shortly before 10:30 a.m. Sunday at a one story home located at 4539 Houston Branch Road. 

It took 20 firefighters from the Federalsburg Volunteer Fire Department approximately half an hour to get the fire under control. 

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