SALISBURY, Md. -  The investigation is underway after a massive structure fire on Lake Street in Salisbury Thursday night.

According to reports, the Salisbury Fire Department arrived on the scene around 7:40 PM to heavy flames coming out of D & D Repair Shop, an auto repair shop. Fire departments from Hebron, Delmar, Fruitland, and Parsonsburg responded to assist in battling the flames.

A reported 50 firefighters were on scene, at the 50 x 100 commercial building. Officials say it took them approximately three hours to bring the blaze under control.

The State Fire Marshals Office is now investigating the origin and cause of the fire. Reports say damages are estimated at $750,000.00. Investigators say no injuries were reported. Salisbury Fire Department did apparently rescue the occupant's dog from the building. Officials say it is unknown if there was a working smoke alarm in the building.

Lake Street is expected to remain closed to through traffic from Route 50 to Isabella Street, until 5:00 PM on Friday, while crews clean up debris from the fire. Local traffic will be permitted during this time.
