Cause of Dover house fire under investigation

Investigators are looking for answers, after flames caused $100,000 in damages to a Dover home, Friday morning.

The Delaware State Fire Marshal’s says neighbors of the Huntly Circle home discovered the fire around 10:15 AM. The Dover Police Department then responded, and apparently found heavy fire coming form the two story home. Additional firefighters from neighboring companies reportedly responded, and the crews had the flames under control just after 12:00 PM.

Officials say two firefighters were taken from the scene to Kent General Hospital for injuries sustained during the blaze, but both were apparently expected to be treated and later released. The occupants of the home were reportedly not home at the time of the fire, and are now being assisted by the American Red Cross.

Deputy State Fire Marshals say they are still looking into to cause of the fire. Damages are estimated at a loss of $100,000.
