Investigators are working to determine what caused a pair of fires, one of which landed a woman in the hospital this weekend.

Wilmington firefighters, New Castle County Paramedics and Saint Francis Hospital EMS personnel were called to the 600 block of West Street around 3:10 a.m. Saturday, March 13, 2021.

A 60-year-old woman was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation and leg burns before she was taken to Christiana Hospital.

A second woman was treated for a problem unrelated to the fire and taken to Wilmington Hospital.

The city's Fire Marshal's office is investigating that fire.

A Friday night house fire in Eden Park Gardens forced 8 people to seek emergency shelter.

Holloway Terrace fire crews saw smoke coming from the house in the 200 block of Wilmington Avenue near Terminal Avenue in Eden Park Gardens around 9:30 p.m. Friday, the Delaware State Fire Marshal's office said.

They were able to put the fire out, but not before it did about $80,000 in damage.

The house's eight occupants were able to escape the flames, and no one was hurt.

The Red Cross is providing emergency shelter.
