SALISBURY, Md.-  The Salisbury Fire Department has confirmed one person died during a house fire in the city on Saturday afternoon.

The fire happened late in the afternoon on the 300 block of Prince Street.  The fire is still under investigation and a cause has not been released yet, nor has a description of the victim.  The Maryland State Fire Marshal says the victim is being taken to the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore to determine the cause of death.

The building was a one story home owned by RBS Properties, and the fire appears to have begun in a rear utility room.

The one alarm fire began at 3:49, and took 30 firefighters 25 minutes to contain.
