The Delaware State Fire Marshal’s office is reporting the death of one person in a Milford house fire that also led to five others being taken to area hospitals.
The Frederica Volunteer Fire Company responded to the fire at about 10:30 a.m. May 10, in the 1900 block of Reynolds Road, Assistant State Fire Marshal Michael G. Chionchio said.
Firefighters arrived on the scene to find flames shooting from the one-story home, Chionchio said.
The dead person was found inside the home, he added,
Four people were flown to Bayhealth-Milford Memorial Hospital, where they were treated and released; a fifth person first was flown to Bayhealth-Kent General Hospital, and later transferred to the Crozer Medical Center in Upland, Pa., Chionchio said.
Deputy fire marshals are conducting the investigation into the fire’s origin and cause.
