The remainder of the house sustained heavy
smoke, heat, and water damage. The homes at 104 and 108 also sustained
smoke damage. Thirty five (35) firefighters brought the blaze under control
at 1503 hours.
||Wilmington FD units were dispatched
to 106 Delamore Place at 1433 hours on Wednesday in response to several
calls to the dispatch center reporting a House Fire. First arriving companies
reported fire showing from the second floor, front windows of a two story,
brick, occupied, single family dwelling. The fire appears to have started
in the front bedroom on the second floor, and was quickly spreading into
the hallway and the second bedroom of the fire building. Firefighters made
an aggressive attack on the fire containing it to the second floor.
||Two occupants of the home, a woman and
a juvenile, were transported to the Wilmington Hospital and were being
treated for smoke inhalation at the time of this writing. They had escaped
from the residence prior to the arrival of the fire department. It did
not appear that there were any working smoke detectors in the residence.
There were no injuries to the firefighters on the scene.
The cause and origin of the fire are under
investigation by the Wilmington Fire Department Fire Marshal’s Office.
