SUSSEX COUNTY, Del. (AP) — Delaware authorities say a house fire in a neighborhood near the coast was an accident.


The Delaware Office of the State Fire Marshal issued a news release saying that it had ruled the fire on Sunday morning in Sussex County, Delaware was accidental.

No injuries were reported. Authorities say the fire damage was estimated at $250,000.

The Lewes Fire Company responded to the blaze around 9:30 a.m., and state fire investigators were caused to look into the cause.
