SALISBURY, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Office of the State Fire Marshal says that two people died in a house fire in Salisbury.  

A news release Saturday from the office said that passersby called 911 around 3 a.m. when they saw the house on fire. Authorities say the house had been converted into seven individual apartments. The Salisbury Fire Department responded and it took 35 firefighters about 40 minutes to control the fire. The victims appear to be a 62-year-old man and an 82-year-old woman who lived in separate units. They will be taken to the medical examiner for identification and the exact cause of death.

Seven other residents were able to escape the fire.
