The state fire marshal and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms are investigating an fire early Sunday that consumed a vacant building at the former Bainbridge Naval Station.

More than 30 firefighters from several jurisdictions in Maryland and Pennsylvania worked for nearly three hours to contain the Cecil County blaze, which began just before 3 a.m.

The three-story stone and mortar building was originally constructed in 1901 as the Tome School for Boys and later operated as a naval training center from 1942 to 1976. Closed by the Navy in 1986, it then served for a time as a Job Corps Center.

Anyone with information concerning the incident as asked to contact the Northeast Regional Office of the State Fire Marshal at 410-836-4844.
