CRISFIELD, Md. - Fire crews got the upper hand on an attic fire before it could cause serious damage to a Somerset County home early Tuesday.

According to the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office, the fire started around 1:30 a.m. at the home on Sackertown Road in Crisfield,

A person inside spotted the fire and called for help but fire officials say the home's smoke alarms did not activate.

Firefighters with the Crisfield Fire Department got the fire under control in about 30 minutes.

Investigators said an electrical failure sparked the fire, which caused about $5,000 in damage to the home and its contents. There were no reported injuries.
