The Elkton Fire Department responded to a house fire on South Main Street this morning.
The first call went out shortly after 8 for a fire at 508 South Main, which is just north of the Poplar Street intersection. Elkton Police Chief Bruce Marklin said the female occupant of the home returned home from work to find smoke and fire when she opened the door.
No one else was home and Chief Marklin said there were no injuries. Officials believe the blaze may have been electrical in nature. Fire-fighters were able to save much of the outer-structure but the inside of the home is believed to be nearly a complete loss due to smoke, water and fire damage.
