BIVALVE, Md. - A Thursday afternoon mobile home fire in Bivalve, has been ruled accidental.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office say the fire started just before 1:45 PM, in a concealed wall space of a bedroom of a mobile home on Texas Road. The blaze, which officials say was discovered by a neighbor,  reportedly took 15 firefighters from three area departments, 10 minutes to control.

The home did apparently have working and activated smoking detectors, and no injuries were reported. Damages are estimated at $5,200, according to authorities.

The Fire Marshal's Office has ruled the cause as accidental and was apparently caused by an electrical malfunction.
