FERNDALE, MD - A Ferndale house fire caused $200,000 in damage Wednesday morning, officials said. 

Nobody was home during the fire, and nobody was hurt.

Investigators don't know what caused the blaze.

Multiple neighbors called 911 to report the flames around 7:21 a.m., firefighters said.

Crews said they arrived in the 400 block of Broadview Boulevard within four minutes of dispatch and found the 1.5-story, single-family home ablaze.

Firefighters said they "initially entered the home but had to transition to a defensive-only operation due to the fire's progression."

A team of 47 controlled the flames in about 50 minutes, a press release said.

The cause and area of origin are still under investigation.
