Fire at Rehoboth Beach Outlet Store Causes $5,000 in Damages

Posted: Mar 23, 2018 12:08 AM Updated:

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.- The Delaware State Fire Marshal has concluded its investigation into an early Thursday morning fire at store in one of the Rehoboth Beach outlets.

Fire crews with the Lewes, Rehoboth Beach, and Indian River volunteer fire companies responded to the fire around 4:19 this morning at the Polo Ralph Lauren store located on the 35000 block of Midway Outlet Drive.

Investigators said the sprinkler system kept the flames at bay so firefighters were able to get the fire under control quickly. 

The cause of the fire was a malfunction of a fluorescent light fixture that ignited nearby combustible materials, according to investgigators.

About $5,000 worth of damage was reported. There were no reported injuries.
