Salisbury Multi-Family House Fire Ruled Accidental

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Officials say a fire started after pipes burst, in a Salisbury multi-family dwelling.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office says just after 4:00 AM on Monday morning, a fire started in a first floor back bedroom, of a Hazel Avenue home. Officials say the blaze, which was discovered by the occupant, took five Salisbury firefighters a half an hour to control.

No one was injured during the incident. Damages are estimated at $5,500. The cause has been ruled as accidental, after an electrical short happened because of a burst water pipe.

The American Red Cross Delmarva Region is assisting the resident, and providing a safe place to stay, clothing, food, and a comfort kit.
