Firefighters Battle Back Flames, Find Body in Delaware Home

Firefighters made a grisly find overnight after extinguishing a blaze in Delaware.

Firefighters arrived to Talleyville home along Abington Road near Epping Road in the Dartmouth Woods development late Tuesday night to find the multi-level home engulfed in flames, said the state fire marshal.

Firefighters got the blaze under control after about 30 minutes but it was too late for a person found dead inside the home, said New Castle County dispatchers.

The fire marshal's office searched Wednesday morning for clues about what caused the blaze that left $200,000 in damage, said investigators.
