UPDATE: One Dead After Sunday Morning Sussex Fire Destroys Mobile Home

Posted: Mar 18, 2018 7:31 AM Updated:

 

 

MILLSBORO, De. -- The Delaware Office of the State Fire Marshal said one person died and two people were rescued after a Sunday morning fire at a mobile home. 

The State Fire Marshal's office said the fire was reported around 3 a.m. on the unit block of Harbor Road in Malone's Marina. 

The Indian River Volunteer Fire Company posted a few photos on their Facebook page that showed the heavy flames and smoke coming from the Mobile home at Malone's Bayside Marina in Millsboro.

According to an update on the Facebook page, the fire appeared to be under control just after 5:30 a.m. Sunday and some of the firefighters were being released from the scene.  But the photos show the mobile home is a complete loss.  The back of the home is charred and the front has extensive smoke damage.  The inside of the home appears to have suffered extensive damage as well.

The office said that firefighters rescued one resident and rushed the victim to Beebe Hospital, where the person died. Two other people were treated and released. The office estimates $50,000 in heavy fire damage.

The cause and origin of the fire remain under investigation.

    The buoy started cropping up in photos posted to social media last week, shortly after the remnants of Hurricane Gordon caused big high tides that may have dragged the naval guide to the beach.
