The state fire marshal's office was called in to investigate a fire that did minimal damage to a Rockland home Saturday morning.

ROCKLAND, Maine — The Maine Fire Marshal’s Office was called in to investigate a Saturday morning fire that caused some damage to the exterior of a house.

There were no injuries.

The fire was reported to the Rockland Fire Department shortly after 10 a.m. at 7 Oliver Woods North. The ranch-style house is owned by Jeremy Young, according to city assessment records.

The fire was extinguished before the first crew arrived, acting Rockland Fire Chief Adam Miceli said Sunday afternoon. The fire started in debris next to the house that scorched siding but did not extend to the interior, the chief said.

The fire is believed to have started by children, the chief said.
