FELTON, Del. - A fire Monday morning in Felton was ruled accidental, according to the Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office.

Officials say it happened just before 8 am Monday in the 3000 block of Midstate Road between Frederica and Felton, Del. 

The Frederica Volunteer Fire Department responded to the call. When firefighters arrived on scene, authorities say there was heavy smoke inside the home. Several neighboring fire companies also responded to assist putting the fire out, according to fire officials.

Officials say it took crews about a half hour to extinguish the flames. The State Fire Marshal says no one was inside the home at the time and no injuries were reported.

Officials say Deputy State Fire Marshals responded to the scene to conduct an investigation and determined the fire originated at the electrical service panel and was caused by a failure in the fixed branch circuitry. Damages were estimated at $75,000.
