SALISBURY, Md.– The American Red Cross is aiding seven people who were displaced following a late Saturday night fire that heavily damaged a Salisbury apartment building, according to the Maryland State Fire Marshal.

The fire reportedly occurred shortly after 11 p.m. at the two story wood-framed structure located at 924 S. Division St. It took 40 firefighters from all three Salisbury fire stations, as well as the Fruitland Volunteer Fire Company, approximately one hour to get the blaze under control.

There were no reported injuries. The fire caused an estimated $150,000 in structural damage and $30,000 in content damage, investigators said. 

The fire, which started in the bedroom of apartment 5, has been ruled accidental. Investigators said an electrical malfunction was to blame.
