A fire early Friday destroyed a Sykesville house under construction, Howard County fire officials said.

The one-alarm fire in the unoccupied two-story wooden house in the 13800 block of Forsythe Road in Sykesville started at 1: 24 a.m. Friday.

It caused $225,000 in structural and content damage and took 50 firefighters about an hour to bring under control.

No one was injured.

The state fire marshal's office is investigating the cause.
