Woman Treated for Smoke Inhalation After Greenwood Fire

Posted:

GREENWOOD, Del.- Investigators say a woman had to be taken to the hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation following a Sunday night house fire in Greenwood.

The Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office said the blaze was reported by a neighbor shortly before 10 p.m. at a home located on the unit block of Gardenia Boulevard in Blairs Pond Estates. 

The Houston Fire Company responded to the call and received reports that someone may still be inside the home. When firefighters responded to the scene, they discovered smoke coming from the house. Firefighters located and rescued a 46-year-old woman from inside the dwelling. She was transported to Milford Memorial Hospital for smoke inhalation and later transferred to Chester Crozer Burn Center in Pennsylvania. Her condition was last listed as stable. The fire was extinguished and placed under control shortly after 10 p.m.

Deputy State Fire Marshals say an investigation determined the fire to be intentionally set.  The investigation is continuing.

Damages were estimated at $25,000.
