Woodstove Carelessness Reported Cause Of Nanticoke House Fire

NANTICOKE, Md. - Officials say carelessness is to blame for a house going up in flames on Saturday morning in Nanticoke.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office says the fire started around 5:55 AM, in the woodstove of the 2619 Spring Lane home. The blaze took 50 firefighters, from Westside, Hebron, and Mardela, an hour to control, and left behind $55,000 in total damages.
