Lewes fire ruled accident

Feb 10, 2014

A fire that started at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 9 in McNicol Park was accidental, says the Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office.

The fire started in a home in the 34000 block of Pinewood Circle; the Lewes Fire Department responded to the scene, said Michael G. Chionchio, assistant state fire marshal.

Chionchio said the fire was sparked by an electrical failure in a power cord used for a refrigerator.

The fire caused about $30,000 in damage. No one was injured, and the trailer was not occupied, Chionchio said.
