Around 1130pm all three Salisbury stations were alerted for a structure fire with people trapped in the 900-block of S. Division St.  AC-1 (Frampton) and PM-1 arrived on location to find a working fire on the second floor of a 2-1/2 story aprtment building.  Subjects standing on the street advised of an occupant still on the second floor.  The crews of PM-1 and PM16-1 quickly entered the structure and began an aggressive search on the second floor.  TK-1 arrived and their crew was sent to the second floor to assist, as well.  It was soon learned the occupant had been helped to safety by another resident via a rear stairwell.  E16 was responding from a previous call on the west side of town; and upon their arrival laid out 300 feet of 5-inch supply line and advanced a hoseline to the second floor to extinguish the fire and provide relief to interior crews.  E2 arrived and deployed a second handline from E16 to the fire floor.  Command requested an engine from Fruitland for manpower.  All searches proved negative.  The Maryland State Fire Marshal is investigating the cause.  The Red Cross assisted the occupants that were displaced from the 6 units.  Crew sremained on scene until around 3am.
