    A man is dead and two people are injured after a house fire in Delaware.

    The two-alarm blaze broke out Saturday around 11 p.m. on the 700 block of Money Road in Townsend, New Castle County. Firefighters were able to control the blaze shortly before 12:30 a.m.

    Police say a woman escaped from the home and was taken to Christiana Hospital where she was treated for smoke inhalation. She is currently in good condition. Firefighters later found a man dead inside the home after the flames were extinguished.

    A firefighter was also hurt after a wall fell on top of him, injuring his leg. He was also taken to Christiana Hospital where he was treated and released.

    Officials continue to investigate the cause of the fire. They also say an autopsy will be performed on the male victim. There were no working smoke alarms inside the home, according to investigators.
