RHODESDALE, Md.- Authorities say a weekend fire that started in an RV spread to a home in Dorchester County, resulting in an estimated $125,000 in total damage. 

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said the blaze occurred shortly after 3 p.m. Sunday at 5946 Allen Road in Rhodesdale. Investigators said the fire started in the interior of a 2003 Winnebago Adventurer, resulting in $40,000 in damage to the RV. The fire also extended into the family home, causing an estimated $80,000 in damage to it, authorities said.

It took 40 firefighters from the Eldorado-Brookview Volunteer Fire Company approximately an hour to get the fire under control. 

There were no reported injuries. 

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Anyone with additional information is urged to contact the Lower Eastern Region Office of the State Fire Marshal at 410-713-3780. 

The American Red Cross is assisting the property owners, identified by investigators as John and Linda Wheedleton.
