Firefighters Respond to Fire in North Shores Home

Residents on one normally quiet road in North Shores have seen quite a bit of activity this past week. It started last Sunday when the black Chevy Suburbans and other mysterious vehicles parked along the street occupied by men throughout the day and night guarding the residence the Bidens would occupy through Thursday morning.

Firefighters Respond to Fire in North Shores Home

On Saturday morning, fire apparatus from Rehoboth Beach and Lewes filled the road after a reported electrical fire broke out at 16 Farview Road.

The call for help came in around 8:25 a.m. after the occupants noted flames coming from an inside exhaust fan.

Firefighters arrived within minutes and reported that the fire was confined mostly to the second-floor powder room although it was spreading to the attic. They had the fire under control in less than 20 minutes.

The four occupants who were inside escaped unharmed. That is them talking with the fire marshal. No cause or damage estimate has been released as of yet. The house is a rental.
