FRUITLAND, Md.- Investigators say eight livestock died in an early Monday fire that heavily damaged a barn west of Fruitland.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said the blaze broke out shortly before 2 a.m. at the 40-foot by 50-foot building located at 28121 Riverside Drive Extended outside of Fruitland.

It took 35 firefighters approximately 15 minutes to get the fire under control. The fire caused an estimated $60,000 in damage to the structure and another $5,000 in damage to its contents. 

Deputy state fire marshals determined the fire started inside the barn but its cause remains under investigation.
