Lexington St & S. Brookdale, Saturday Night
These photos were supplied by Pat Andrews of the Salisbury Fire Department. This house located near Lexington St & Brookdale Dr. burned this past Saturday night.
Often time the public sees the aftermath of a fire but seldom do they get to see what the firefighters see upon arrival of a scene. I do not have a lot of details on this fire other what I can see in these and other photos that Pat sent.
This was a small structure and it appears to me by & large is was one room well involved. With this much fire showing on arrival of the Engine I would imagine there is some extension of the fire into other areas of the structure as well. Not having a solid report on the events my best guess is an aggressive interior attack on the fire was made and knockdown occured fairly quickly. I would also guess an extensive mop-up was in order and all in all it made for a tiring night
