SALSIBURY, Md. (AP) - Fire officials say a blaze heavily damaged a group of family businesses in south Salisbury.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal’s Office says the fire broke out at Robinson’s Family of Businesses about 3 p.m. Sunday.

The businesses buy precious metals and coins, repair, clean and appraise jewelry, and do screen printing and engraving.

Owner John Robinson tells WBOC-TV (https://bit.ly/1PynTst) that his wife, Tracy, was in the building when the fire broke out. He says she escaped uninjured.

Authorities say about 40 firefighters battled the blaze for an hour before bringing it under control. Damage was estimated at $330,000. Officials say the blaze started in a rear screen printing room; the cause is under investigation.
