REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.- Authorities are searching for the cause of an early Tuesday morning fire that caused an estimated $5 million in damage to two homes in Rehoboth Beach.

The Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office said the blaze occurred shortly after 3 a.m. in the unit block of Sand Dune Drive. The Rehoboth Beach Volunteer Fire Company, assisted by the Lewes, Bethany Beach, Indian River, Millville, Milton, Slaughter Beach, Georgetown, and Millsboro volunteer fire companies, responded to the scene to find heavy fire showing from two large single family homes with fire and heat impinging on three other homes.

The houses were unoccupied at the time of the fire. One firefighter was
transported to Beebe Medical Center and treated for a cut to the head, authorities said. There were no other reported injuries.

The incident was reported under control at 5:29 a.m.  Fire personnel remained on scene until shortly after 10 a.m.
