Flames for Board of Education and other state buildings -- Cambridge, MD

Authorities say arson is to blame for an early Tuesday morning fire that caused thousands of dollars in damage to buildings belonging to the Dorchester County Board of Education.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office says the blaze broke out at around 2:31 a.m. in a 12-foot by 20-foot wood frame shed located on 2465 Cambridge Bypass in Cambridge. The shed, which belongs to the Dorchester County Board of Education, sustained about $3,000 in damage. The shed fire spread to four nearby vehicles, as well as the Dorchester Career and Technology Center. Those fires caused an additional $60,000 in damages. There were no reported injuries.

It took 30 firefighters from the Rescue, Church Creek and Linkwood fire companies approximately 20 minutes to get the blaze under control.
