Investigators are looking into the cause of a fire that gutted a vacant house at 214 Chestnut St. on Friday afternoon.
No one is believed to have been living in the two-story house, but the roof collapsed and the side of a neighboring house was damaged.
Firefighters rescued a small dog named Mimi from the home next door at 216 Chestnut St. They carried the dog out in a crate to her worried owner, Diane Abram.
There were no reports of injuries from the fire, which was called in to 911 around 4 p.m. Friday.
Terry Smith, Salisbury city fire marshal, said Friday that investigators were still working to determine a cause.
The property owner has not been named. Fire and police officials said the owner was not living in the house, and there were no tenants.
