GUMBORO, Del. - Officials say an electrical cord failure caused a house fire in Gumboro on Monday.
Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office says they investigated the blaze that started just before 6:40 AM, in the living room of the Millsboro Highway home. When crews arrived, they reportedly found flames coming from a first floor window.
The home, which was occupied at the time of the fire, had working smoke detectors. Two people were treated at Nanticoke Hospital for smoke inhalation. No word yet on the extent of the damages.
