SALISBURY, Md. (WBOC/AP)- Three young children have been rescued from a burning home on Collins Street in Salisbury. 

The Salisbury Fire Department said in a Facebook post that two civilians pulled the 4-year-old, 5-year-old and 7-year-old from a rear window on Wednesday night, prior to fire crews' arrival.

The department says the fire was caused by unattended cooking, and the mother had escaped safely after a smoke detector went off.

There is no word yet if the children suffered any injuries. The status of the structure has not been reported, although the fire department did post photos of two rooms, one of which had sustained heavy heat and smoke damage. The other room, from which the children had escaped, was relatively unscathed, which the department attributes to a closed door.

The Delmar and Hebron fire departments assisted firefighting efforts.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office is investigating.
