(HURLOCK, Md.) - The Office of the Maryland State Fire Marshal is investigating a fire that caused thousands of damage to a storage building in Dorchester County early Sunday morning. 
 
Fire officials say the 18' x 24' wood frame storage building that sits on Palmers Mill Road in Hurlock went up in flames around midnight Sunday. The Hurlock Fire Department was the primary responding agency. 20 firefighters were on the scene and officials say it took an hour-an-a-half to get the fire under control. 
 
Officials have determined that the blaze started inside the building. The Office of the Maryland State Fire Marshal estimates the structure loss at $20,000 but has also determined there to be $200,000 lost from the contents that were inside.
 
No injuries have been reported.
