Salisbury fire displaces residents

SALISBURY — Fire crews from four area departments responded to a blaze at a home off Lower Plains Road in Salisbury this past Wednesday morning.
The fire, which began around 10:30 a.m., was extinguished by two dozen firefighters from Salisbury, Middlebury, Weybridge and Cornwall.
Salisbury Fire Chief Gary Smith said the fire began in the basement of the home and was quickly contained to a single room in the basement. Smith did not speculate on a cause, but said he did not believe it to be suspicious. A state fire investigator will ultimately determine the cause.
Middlebury Fire Chief Rick Cole said crews were able to put out the blaze without much water, limiting the damage to the structure, which he said will “certainly be salvageable.” The home did sustain some damage, however, including what Cole called “significant smoke damage and will require extensive electrical repairs.”
The fire temporarily displaced the four residents of the house, Smith said. The damaged residence is a rental property owned by Gary DuPoise of Salisbury. Dannielle DuPoise, the owner’s daughter, was a tenant.
