REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.- Firefighters responded to a house fire in Rehoboth Beach Sunday afternoon.

The Indian River and the Rehoboth Beach volunteer fire companies were called to assist the Lewes Fire Department with a house fire on Bryan Drive in the Midway Estates development.

According to the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company, the fire affected the basement and first floor of the home.

Firefighters say no one was home at the time, but the family pets may have died in the fire.

It was also reported that an extensive overhaul task was needed to ensure the fire was completely extinguished in the basement, crawl space, and floor joist areas.

The Delaware State Fire Police provided traffic control and pedestrian accessibility to a minimum during the incident.

The Delaware State Fire Marshall is investigating the cause of this fire in Rehoboth Beach.

You can view more photos from this fire on the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company's website.
