Video by Wayne Barrall at Fire In the Hole Photography of a fire on Monday Night at Burton Brothers Hardware in Seaford, Delaware (Sussex County). Ron and Ric Marvel are co-owners of the business and fought the blaze as members of the Seaford Volunteer Fire Department. Burton Brothers has been around since 1893 and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
A blaze that heavily damaged Burton Bros. Hardware Store, a Delaware institution on High Street in Seaford, caused $500,000 damage and sent one injured firefighter to a burn center for treatment, investigators reported today.
Co-owner Ron Marvel, 62, said the firefighter taken to the Crozer-Chester Burn Center in Upland, Pa., was his brother and co-owner Ric Marvel, 58. He said his brother was suffering from smoke inhalation, and went first to Nanticoke hospital, then to Crozer-Chester.
“I drove the first engine in here,” said Ron Marvel. Both brothers belong to the Seaford Volunteer Fire Department, which is just a couple of blocks away from the store.
