REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. – A late Sunday night fire damaged a Rehoboth Beach home and killed three pets, fire officials said.

The Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office said that shortly before 11 p.m., crews with the Rehoboth Beach Volunteer Fire Company were dispatched to a reported working house fire on the 35000 block of High Alpine Lane. The Lewes and Indian River fire companies were also dispatched to assist the Rehoboth firefighters, officials said.

When firefighters arrived on the scene, they encountered heavy fire showing. 

The homeowner was not home at the time of the fire, but three pets- a dog, a cat and a bird- perished in the blaze. Damages have been estimated at $70,000.

Investigators determined that the fire originated in a bedroom. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
