Feb 04, 2013 -- 4:29am

The owners of Burton Brothers Hardware Store in Seaford have announced that they will NOT re-build following a fire that heavily damaged the building on High Street last November.

Burton Brothers Hardware opened in 1893 and was listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Co-owners Ronny and Ricky Marvel says the decision NOT to re-open was made because of the extensive damage done to the building.

The State Fire Marshal’s ruled that a faulty electric wire in the building’s walls sparked the blaze and caused $500,000 in damage.
