BEAR, Del. (AP) - The Delaware State Fire Marshal’s office is investigating after four people were hurt and three homes in Bear were damaged by a fire.

The blaze broke out at a home on Three Rivers Drive around 4 a.m. Thursday and when firefighters arrived they found flames engulfing a two-story townhouse.

Four people who were inside the townhouse were taken to Christiana Hospital by private automobile. A 39-year-old woman was admitted with a back injury and 18-year-old man was admitted with smoke inhalation, but officials say their injuries aren’t thought to be life threatening. Two girls, ages 2 and 13, were released.

Damage to the house is estimated at $500,000. Deputy fire marshals are investigating the cause of the fire.
