Nature: Structure Fire

Location: 18 Pinewater Dr., Harbeson, DE 19951


On Thursday, June 25th, the Indian River (80), Lewes (82), and Rehoboth Beach (86) fire departments were alerted for a structure fire at 18 Pinewater Drive in the Pinewater Farms development.  It was reported to be in the utility room involving the water heater.

Emergency response units from Indian River included:  Tanker 80 and Rescue 80 from the Oak Orchard facility, Engines #80-1 and #80-3 from the Long Neck facility as well as the Delaware State Fire Police.  Additional alerts also included the local emergency medical services provider and the Sussex County Paramedics.

Emergency response crew assignments included fire suppression, evaluation for extension, ventilation via positive pressure awaiting arrival of the fire marshal.

It appears that the incident was an electrical issue with the hot water heater inside the utility room which caused a smoke condition throughout the residential structure.

The Delaware State Fire Police coordinated traffic control for the duration of the incident.

The Delaware State Fire Marshall is investigating.
