SALISBURY, Md-A Friday morning house fire on Patrick Avenue killed one man and put his wife in critical condition.

The fire brought nearly twenty five firefighters from various Salisbury Stations and the Delmar Fire department to the scene. 

Authorities identified the victims as 66-year-old William Holbrook Jr. and his wife 41-year-old Mary Holbrook.

They said the Holbrooks were found unconscious in the smoke filled duplex. The victims were taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center where authorities said Mr. Holbrook died of his injuries received during the fire. 

The office said that Mrs. Holbrook remains at the hospital in critical condition. The couple's pet dog and cat also died in the fire.

"I was not able to see my father because I was told he was burnt so bad. It hurts," said the couple's daughter, 18-year-old, Monica Holbrook who was not home at the time of the fire.

"I'm trying to figure out where we are going to bury him how we are going to bury him with what money we are going to bury him," she said.

Mrs. Holbrook's mother, Janice Bullion told WBOC that she was praying for her daughter to pull through.

"That's my daughter and I don't want to lose her," Bullion said.

Monica said that losing her father is hard enough but also gone are family photos.

"All of the memories all the pictures, the baby pictures, everything, our family pictures they are gone everything is ruined," she said tearfully.

There was also another man living on the other side of the duplex-style home who lost everything as well.

The American Red Cross is assisting him.
