Damage from Salisbury Apartment Fire Minimal Thanks to Sprinkler System

Feb 09, 2013 -- 2:11pm

Damage from an apartment fire in Salisbury was held to a minimum – thanks to a sprinkler system. Firefighters from Salisbury and Fruitland were called to a Winterborn Lane home just before 8:30 Saturday morning when fire broke out in a 5-unit apartment building.  The cause – a 4-year old playing with matches set his bedding on fire, but the apartment was equipped with not only smoke detectors but sprinklers – and that kept the fire contained and damage to a minimum.  Everyone was able to escape the building safely.  Damage is estimated at $4000.
