Three Children Die In Fire In Millsboro

Millsboro, Delaware – The Delaware State Police and the State Fire Marshal’s Office are currently conducting a joint death investigation that began on Wednesday at approximately 2:32 p.m. on August 7, 2019.

The preliminary investigation has determined that a 9-1-1 called was placed to the Sussex County Emergency Operations Center for a report of a fire on Scarp Street located in Pot Nets Development Bayside, Millsboro. As first responders arrived on scene the rear part of the residence was engulfed in flames and was quickly extinguished by the responding fire departments. Upon entering into the residence and through the heavy smoke three children were found deceased all under the age of five years old.

While the residence was on fire, one other child was safely removed from the residence by a parent. The child was transported to the Beebe Medical Center for a medical evaluation and was treated and released.

The three children victims who perished in the fire were turned over to the Delaware Division of Forensic Science where an autopsy will be performed to determine the manner and cause of death.

This is an active and ongoing investigation and is in its early stages with further information being released as it becomes available.

  2. From Maryland Senator Steve Hershey’s Twitter Account. This is the Pro “Red Flag” “Gun Confiscation” Bullshit that he has been tweeting the last several days. He is aligning himself with RINO Hogan and bashing our President, Tucker Carlson and white Americans. Time for him to go!
    Check out our RINO Eastern Shore State Senator Steve Hershey. He really has lost it and attacked Tucker Carlson. His Liberal True Colors are really Showing. He is one of the Jack A$$es that supported RINO Hogan on the Red Flag Law along with RINO’s Carl Anderton, Mary Beth Carrozza and Chris Adams. I’m thinking the way this RINO idiot is sucking up to Hogan and the Dems is that he is getting cocky and thinking he has a chance at being the next Governor? He has been constantly attacking Trump and now Tucker Carlson and siding with Hogan. Time to remove him as the Minority Whip and make sure he doesn’t get re-elected.

    I’m done with the thoughts and prayers. I’m done with the phony outrage from scores of politicians. I’m angry. I’m horrified. I’m devastated. Our American culture is suffering. Let’s call this what it is: A white nationalist committed an act of terrorism.

    Why are so many politicians afraid to call a spade a spade? White supremacy & white nationalism is on the rise in America. And now it has manifested into mass shootings. A pattern becomes a data point. We know the who, the what & the why; we have to prevent the next when & where.

    Mr. President: The El Paso gunman is a wicked man. He’s also a terrorist and a he’s a white nationalist. The first step in solving any problem is admitting that we have one. We have a white nationalist and white supremacy problem in America. Call it out,

    @TuckerCarlson: I realize your advertising dollars are running thin these days and you have to say outrageous garbage on the air each night for a reaction. White supremacy is not a hoax and it’s certainly not fake. It’s real; it’s here – and it’s a problem. Get a grip, man.

    The 1990’s were some good years – but the 90’s can have back its “video games are the root cause of gun violence” rationalizations. Enough of these mealy-mouthed excuses. We have a cultural problem in America. I’m so tired of the intellectual dishonesty.

    Why is it that when a Republican like myself – a proud conservative, a small businessman, middle- class guy – speaks out on gun violence and cultural corrosion, some of these hard partisans begin to assume I’ve transformed into a “leftwing agent?” Thats nuts.

    We cannot allow our political system to be co-opted by irrational partisan hacks. There is nothing more American than putting aside partisanship and working with people – not political parties – to end mass shootings. We’ve got to get past the politics and work together.

    A few days ago I called out white supremacy. Now, apparently, that makes me a “RINO” in the eyes of some. This is what I was talking about – the toxicity of politics. I could have given you a better picture of me for your article,

    To some of my Republican friends attacking me today for my recent comments on gun violence and its causes: I’m going to work with you, too, to ensure your families are safe from gun violence. I’m going to continue to fight for all responsible gun owners.
