Firefighters from Middletown and surrounding companies were busy for the second time in 36 hours.

Bailey says all of the occupants were out of house when they arrived but it took about an hour to extinguish the flames.

It was Saturday evening when a detached garage on Choptank Road that housed ammunition ignited.

In addition to fighting the flames firefighters had to dodge shells and shrapnel.

No one was injured in either blaze and both are under investigation by the Delaware State Fire Marshals' Office.
