Man Injured During Accidental Grease Fire In Salisbury

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - A fire that left a man with burn injuries and smoke inhalation in Salisbury, has been ruled accidental.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office says the blaze started around 8:22 PM on Wednesday, on the stove top in the kitchen of the Riverside Drive Extended home. The fire took 20 firefighters from three companies, 10 minutes to control, and caused a total of $20,000 in damages.

Investigators say cooking greasing caused the fire. According to the report, the 43-year-old occupant tried to put out the fire himself, and suffered burn injuries and smoke inhalation.

He was taken to PRMC for treatment, and then transferred to Bayview Burn Center for additional treatment, where he remains in critical condition.
