Two Dead in Separate House Fires in Del.

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Authorities say two people have died in fires less than 12 hours apart in New Castle County.

The State Fire Marshal's Office says the first fire was reported about 4 a.m. Thursday on Artwin Road in Wilmington. Firefighters arrived to find flames shooting from the rear of the one-story home.

Officials say firefighters found a body after the blaze was put out. Damage to the home was estimated at $300,000.

Authorities say the second fire broke out about 2 p.m. Thursday in a home on Tamara Circle in Newark. A body was found inside the split-level home by firefighters. Damage was estimated at $100,000.

Both bodies were taken to the state Medical Examiner's Office. The causes of both fires are under investigation.

Authorities say the fires are not related.
