HAVRE DE GRACE — Deputy State Fire Marshals and agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives worked through the night and into Tuesday afternoon hours to investigate a fire that took place Monday night in Havre De Grace.

Just before 10 p.m., Susquehanna Hose Company and surrounding companies responded to 1715 Chapel Road for a reported dwelling fire. Upon arrival they found a two story vacant home on fire and were able to contain the blaze within twenty minutes.

A team of Deputy State Fire Marshals and BATF determined the fire originated within the living room, however the cause of the fire remains under investigation.

The home was extensively damaged, and ongoing assessments will need to be made to determine the total loss. One firefighter sustained a minor injury and was treated on the scene.

Investigators are requesting the publics' assistance with any information they have to contact the Northeast Regional Office Tipline @ 410-386-3050.
