A three alarm fire occurred in the 500 block of Gaskey Road in Salisbury. Heavy flames and smoke were visible coming from the home.
The fire was reported just after 9:00 am and smoke could be seen for miles, even in downtown Salisbury.
Residents had received an eviction notice early Tuesday morning. Chief Rusty Alexander of the Locke Volunteer Fire Department said that when firefighters arrived there were heavy flames in the basement and smoke "coming from every inch of the house."
