Fire destroys motel, buildings in Salisbury

Massive flames engulfed a motel and at least two other buildings early Monday, destroying the structures in the coastal Massachusetts town of Salisbury.

The fire at Michael’s Oceanfront Motel in Salisbury was called in just before 2 a.m., news outlets reported. The fire spread to at least two other buildings described as residential.

Videos and photos from the scene showed large flames burning multiple structures in the beach town.

It was unclear whether anyone was hurt. Salisbury Police said on Twitter that the city's Emergency Management and the American Red Cross had set up a community room at the police department for people displaced by the fire.

John McGuirk told WCVB-TV he woke up to an officer banging on his door telling him to get out.
