LONG NECK, Del.- Authorities are investigating a Thursday night fire that caused significant damage to a mobile home in Long Neck.

The Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office says the blaze occurred at 8:36 p.m. in the Mariner's Cove Mobile Home Park located on the 35000 block of Pine Drive.

The Indian River Fire Department, assisted by the Lewes and Millsboro fire departments, responded to the scene. Upon arrival they encountered heavy fire showing on the north side of the structure.

Two adults and two children escaped the home without injury.  Several family pets perished in the fire. The home was equipped with working smoke detectors, according to investigators.

Damages to the home where the fire originated have been estimated at approximately $70,000 while an adjacent home received approximately $5,000 worth of exposure damage.

The origin and cause of the fire remain under investigation. Anyone with any information about the fire is asked to call the State Fire Marshal's Office at (302) 856-5600.
