BOONSBORO - At least one person was displaced after a Saturday morning fire damaged a home in Boonsboro, fire officials said.

It took about 10 units from Washington and Frederick counties in Maryland and Jefferson County, W.Va., a little less than two hours to extinguish the blaze at 110 Potomac St., said Lt. Chris Mullendore of the Sharpsburg Volunteer Fire Co.

The owner of the home is Marvin D. Woodrum, according to a Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation document.

Fire companies responded to the call about 6 a.m., according to Washington County Emergency Services. The cause of the fire was unknown, and officials from the State Fire Marshal's office were investigating the cause of the fire.

No one was injured, local fire officials said. It was unknown how many people were home during the fire.

At least one person was displaced and was receiving assistance from the Washington County Chapter of the American Red Cross, local Red Cross official Bob McEnroe said.
