CAMBRIDGE, Md. (AP) - Officials say it took about 60 firefighters more than two hours to extinguish a fire at a Cambridge church.

Responding officials say the fire broke out Wednesday evening at the Church of the Nazarene.

The state fire marshal’s office says four members of the church were inside at the time, but evacuated the building safely.

More than a dozen fire companies from across Delmarva responded to extinguish the blaze. One firefighter was transported in stable condition to Dorchester General Hospital for a heat related illness.

The fire marshal’s office says the damage was contained to the fellowship hall, and caused about $600,000 in damage.



Officials have not said what caused the fire.
