No one was injured in the fire, which was discovered by a passerby, according to the notice of investigation.

About 45 firefighters from Susquehanna Hose Company and the Aberdeen Fire Department spent 10 minutes getting the fire under control.

It was caused by improperly discarded smoking materials, a spokesperson with the Fire Marshal's Office said Wednesday.
