PRESTON, Md. -- The Maryland Fire Marshal are investigating a single story fire that has left one man temporarily without a home.

A preliminary fire investigation shows the fire happened on the 22-thousand block of Marsh Creek Road at around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, in the living room of the single family residence. Fire officials say an operating kerosene heater was located to close to combustibles causing the fire. It took 25 firefighters from Preston Voluntary Fire Department 45 minutes to take out the fire; there was no smoke alarm present in the home. The home was being occupied by Dennis Webb; he is being assisted by the American Red Cross. Deputy State Fire Marshals also provided Mr. Webb with a smoke alarm for when he is ready to move back in to the home.

An estimated $80,000 of structural damage was reported from the fire.
