SALISBURY — A family of eight was displaced Monday after a kitchen fire at their Salisbury home, fire officials said.

The family was home at the time of the fire, but all were able to get out unharmed.

The fire was reported about 1:40 p.m. at 155 Cranford Road, off Long Ferry Road.

When firefighters arrived, heavy smoke was coming from the house, said Spencer Assistant Fire Chief Jeremy Carter.

Carter said the fire was in the kitchen and firefighters were able to localize the damage. It’s not clear what caused the fire.

Carter said the fire was controlled quickly and no injuries were reported.

Fire departments that responded include Spencer, West Liberty, Miller’s Ferry, Salisbury and Union. The Rowan County Rescue Squad also responded.

The Hanford Dole Chapter of the American Red Cross is assisting the family, which includes two adults and six children.

The renter of the property, who was still at the scene with his family, declined to comment about the fire.
