HARRINGTON, Del. – The Delaware State Fire Marshal’s Office is trying to determine the cause of a house fire in Harrington that left one person injured.

According to Harrington police, the Harrington, Houston and Farmington fire companies were called to a house fire on the 200 block of Weiner Avenue shortly before 7 p.m. Sunday. When firefighters arrived, they used several hose lines to put out the fire, police said. Firefighters saw that the fire extended into the attic of the home and used Harrington Fire Company’s ladder truck to ventilate the roof of the house, authorities said.

One person inside of the house was transported to a local hospital for smoke inhalation and was later released, according to police. There were no other injuries reported.

The home sustained heavy damage and the cause of the fire is being investigated by the Delaware State Fire Marshal’s Office.
