Investigators are searching for the cause of a fatal house fire Wednesday morning in The Flats section of Wilmington.

Firefighters arrived on-scene at 5th and Spring streets on November 25, 2020, at 9:50 a.m. to find heavy fire conditions on the second-floor of the middle-row dwelling, where ultimately, a woman was found dead.

The victim, believed to be in her 50s, has not yet been identified. No one else was inside when the fire broke out.

A Woodlawn Trust maintenance worker attempted a rescue, but was forced back out by flames; that worker was in serious condition at Christiana Hospital, at last check.

The fire was doused in about 30 minutes.
