House Fire in Felton Ruled Accidental; 1 Person Injured
FELTON, Del. (AP) - Fire investigators have determined a fire that destroyed a home in Felton was accidental.
The Delaware State Fire Marshal's office said Friday that the fire started on a bed and was ignited by a clothes iron that was mistakenly left on. The fire spread through the trailer home and caused heavy damage.
Firefighters were called to the scene on Plymouth Road about 9:30 a.m. Friday. The only occupant of the home escaped and was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation and a burn.
The fire damage is estimated at $20,000. Investigators say there were no smoke alarms in the home at the time.
