Lincoln House Fire Ruled Accidental

Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN, Del.- Authorities have ruled as accidental a Sunday afternoon fire that caused tens of thousands of dollars in damage to a home in Lincoln.

The Delaware State Fire Marshal’s Office said the fire was reported by neighbors shortly after 12 p.m. on the 22000 block of 1St Street off Brick Granary Road. 

The Carlisle Fire Co responded and arrived with heavy smoke coming from the single family home.  Assistance was requested from the Houston, Ellendale, and Slaughter Beach fire companies, with the fire placed under control in about an hour later. 

Deputy State Fire Marshals responded to the scene and conducted the investigation and determined the fire was accidental in nature, caused by an electrical failure in the fixed branch circuitry. 

Investigators said the homeowners were not home at the time of the fire and there were no reported injuries. Damages were estimated at $35,000.
