DOVER, Del.- Three people were sent to the hospital following an early Wednesday morning house fire in Dover.

The Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office said the blaze was reported at 4:12 a.m. in the 100 block of North Governors Boulevard in the Capitol Park neighborhood.

The Dover Fire Department responded and arrived with heavy fire showing from the one-story home. Assistance was also requested from the Little Creek and Camden-Wyoming fire companies, as well as Kent County Paramedics. The fire was placed under control at 4:55 am.

Two occupants inside the home at the time of the fire sustained injuries and were transported to Kent General Hospital. One occupant was treated and released for smoke inhalation. The other was transferred to Crozer Burn Center in Pennsylvania for thermal burns and smoke inhalation. That victim is currently listed in critical condition. One firefighter was transported to Kent General Hospital for reported chest pains and was being evaluated.

The home was not equipped with working smoke detectors, according to investigators.

Deputy State Fire Marshals are investigating the cause of the fire. Damages are estimated at $150,000.
