The Maryland State Fire Marshal’s Office was investigating the cause of a Saturday morning fire inside a locker at the Maryland Correctional Training Center on Roxbury Road, south of Hagerstown.

The fire was discovered by a correctional officer and an inmate at 11:03 a.m. Saturday inside a metal locker in the state prison’s work-release unit, the fire marshal’s office said in a press release Monday.

The fire was controlled within five minutes and caused about $50 worth of damage, the press release said. No one was injured.
