MILLVILLE, Del. -- The Millville Volunteer Fire Company responded to a house fire Monday afternoon, where fire officials said one person died.

The fire department said that they discovered the victim's body once they made entry into the home. 

The identity of the victim is not yet known; the State Fire Marshals Office is continuing to investigate the incident. The Fire Marshal's office reports an estimated $10,000 in fire damage.
