UPDATE: Cause Of House Fire In Cambridge, Under Investigation

Posted: Updated:

CAMBRIDGE, Md. - A Wednesday afternoon house fire in Cambridge is under investigation, after killing two dogs.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office says the blaze started around 3:45 PM in the first floor boiler room of the Mill Street home. The two alarm fire, which was discovered by a passerby, took 50 firefighters from nine area departments, four hours to control.

Officials say there were smoke alarms, but they aren't sure if they were working. No injuries were reported, but two dogs died in the blaze. Damages are estimated to total $175,000. The cause of the fire is reportedly still under investigation by the Fire Marshal's Office.

The occupants of the home are being assisted by the American Red Cross.
