A fire in Whiteford Friday morning displaced one person and caused $150,000 in damage, according to the Office of the State Fire Marshal.

The fire in the 2600 block of Whiteford Road was discovered by a passerby at 7:20 a.m. on Friday, according to the fire marshal's report.

It took 20 firefighters from Whiteford, Norrisville, Delta-Cardiff and Fawn Grove approximately 20 minutes to control the blaze, the report said.

The fire started in a bedroom where a space heater was placed next to combustibles, the fire marshal said.

Neither sprinklers nor a smoke alarm was present, the report stated.

There was $50,000 in structural damage to the rancher home, and items inside valued at $100,000 were damaged as well, according to the fire marshal.

The fire marshal said that Harford County and the Red Cross were providing the person who lived there with assistance.
