Major house fire in Georgetown on Route 113

GEORGETOWN, Del. - Fire officials say a major house fire broke out today in Georgetown.

Officials say flames started around 11:45 AM, though the origin of the fire is unclear at this time.

The Georgetown Volunteer Fire Department is currently on the scene, officials said. Firefighters from Milton, Ellendale, Millsboro, Laurel and Blades also responded.

Around 40 firefighters in total responded, officials said.

Because it was an older house and fully engulfed when firefighters arrived, they report it took 3 hours to get the fire under control.

No injuries were reported, but residents of the home are now displaced.

The house is located at U.S. Route 113 and Edward Street.

This is a developing story and more details will be added as they come in.
