The Office of the State Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of a pool shed fire at an Edgewood home on Thursday evening.
The Joppa-Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company responded to a report of a fire in the 700 block of Woodbridge Center Way at 9:31 p.m.
According to the Office of the State Fire Marshal, the owner discovered the fire in the 20′ x 20′ pool shed. It took 20 firefighters 10 minutes to control the fire, the state fire marshal’s office said.
A preliminary report says the cause of the fire was due to a nearby fire pit. It’s unclear if a smoke detector was present and activated inside the home.
An estimated $25,000 in damages was done to the two-story home, including $20,000 to the structure and $5,000 to the contents, according to the state fire marshal’s office.
