FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A Frederick County house built in the 1800s has been heavily damaged by a fire, but no injuries were reported.

The fire broke out at the three-story log cabin on Hall Road in Frederick on Wednesday afternoon. The Frederick News-Post reports that investigators determined the cause of the fire was electrical in nature and began on the first floor.

Fire officials said there was no one in the house at the time of the fire.

The fire marshal’s office says the blaze caused $150,000 in damage.
