The State Fire Marshal is investigating a fire that caused $150,000 in damage to a Columbia home and left its two residents homeless.

David and Laura Waltzer were not at their home in the 9100 block of Helaine Hamlet Way in Long Reach village when the 10: 52 p.m. blaze engulfed their wood-frame townhouse Saturday. No one was injured in the fire. The Waltzers have sought assistance from friends and family.

Neighbors reported the fire, and 35 Howard County firefighters responded. The fire was under control in about an hour and was confined to the Waltzers' home.

The Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of the fire but believes it was accidental.
