Authorities Investigate Blazes in Wicomico and Somerset Counties
Three house fires have hit Maryland’s Lower Eastern Shore.
Two in Wicomico County
And, one in Somerset County.
A Thursday night blaze in the 800 block of North Division Street caused $30-thousand in damage to a wood-frame detached garage.
Another struck a West Chester Street single-family home at 2:15 am this morning.
Fire marshal documents say it began on the back porch.
Firefighters came from Delmar, Fruitland and Salisbury putting out the blaze in around 45 minutes which cause a total of $95-thousand in damage to the home and its contents.
Meanwhile, the Salisbury Daily Times reports that investigators are looking into a fire on Thursday in Princess Anne.
Around 25 firefighters spent around an hour getting the fire under control.
That home suffered a total of $100-thousand.
The family is being helped by the Red Cross.
