  • Dover’s Fire Department on May 5 fought a fire that caused extensive damage to a two-story home in the Towne Point area of the city.
    The fire was called in at 5:19 p.m. at a home in the 600 block of Nimitz Road, according to information released by the Dover Fire Department.
    Fire Chief Matt Carey was first on the scene, and arrived to find large amounts of fire showing from the home. He immediately requested a second alarm.
    Crews from the first fire engine at the site attacked the fire from the outside. Once the majority of the fire was suppressed, crews went inside to put out the remainder.
    There was no one in the house at the time of the fire, and there were no injuries.
    Five fire engines and two ladder trucks responded to the blaze, while firefighters from the Little Creek and Cheswold volunteer fire companies covered the city of Dover.
    The scene has been turned over to the Dover Fire Marshal’s Office to determine the origin and cause of the blaze.
