SALISBURY, Md.- The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has determined the cause of death of a young girl killed in a Salisbury house fire on Saturday. Four year old Aarionah Moore died of smoke inhalation as a result of a house fire that occurred at 315 Prince Street, Salisbury MD where she stayed with her mother, Shonna Moore.

Moore said, “It just happened so fast. I was just talking to her, I asked her to get out my car and she said ok mommy, and she walked to the backyard and she was playing with her dog. I could see her through my kitchen window, I could see her right there while I was sweeping the floor. I’m looking at her and then I turn around for a second and something said boom. I immediately ran outside.”

Shonna said smoke and fire had immediately filled a small utility shed in the back of the house. Neighbor Lynnette Drummond said after smelling smoke her son ran out to help.

“He thought our house was on fire, so he ran outside and he saw the house on fire and he saw the lady next door crying going, my baby’s in there, my baby’s in there,” Drummond said. 

Several people rushed over and tried to break the shed’s door down, but their efforts were unsuccessful. Salisbury City Council Member, April Jackson is rallying for people to help the family.

Jackson said, “It’s very important that the community invest in this effort simply because we never know when one day we’ll be in this situation and it’s all about unity, bringing people together to help one another, and right now this young lady is in dire need of help, support and comfort.”

A GoFund Me account has been set up to help the family. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
