SALISBURY — No one was hurt in a house fire on Millbridge Road Tuesday morning that drew firefighters from three volunteer departments in the area.
Jeremy and Angela Good own the house, according to Angela’s sister Amy Davis.
Davis lives on the property and said she called 911 when she saw smoke billowing from the roof.
“A man came speeding down the driveway and told me to look at the house and I said, ‘I’m already on the phone with 911,’ ” Davis said.
The fire caused significant damage to the interior of the home, said fire investigators on the scene. The Fire Marshal’s Office was still investigating the cause of the fire Tuesday afternoon.
No one was at home when the fire started Davis said. The Goods’ three children were at school.
The Goods could not be reached for comment.
Fire trucks lined Millbridge Road, across from Patterson Farm, as firefighters worked for about an hour to control the situation.
Davis said a cat was in the home and was taken to the veterinarian.
Firefighters from Atwell, Enochville and Locke departments worked to put the fire out after responding at about 8:45 a.m. and smoke could no longer be seen coming from the home by 9:45 a.m.
