SALISBURY — A two-alarm blaze on Saturday evening ripped through a vacant house on the 500 block of East Liberty Street.

Salisbury Fire Marshal Terry Smith said there were no known injuries. More than a dozen fire trucks from Salisbury and neighboring areas responded to the blaze at 504 East Liberty St.

The cause of the fire was still under investigation Saturday evening, Smith said.

Neighbors told the Salisbury Post that people had been “squatting” in the house for several months. A for sale sign was posted in front of the house for several months, too, neighbors said.
