The blaze was reported shortly before 1 p.m. Dec. 2, in the West Street Annex apartment complex in the 1200 block of Madison Avenue, said assistant State Fire Marshal Michael G. Chionchio.

The Harrington Volunteer Fire Company responded to the call, Chionchio said.

One person, a 43-year-old man who was in the home, was taken first to Bayhealth-Milford Memorial Hospital and then to the Crozer Burn Center, Upland, Pa., where he was admitted in critical condition.

The fire actually was put out by the building's sprinkler system and the fire alarm system notified the other residents of the blaze, Chionchio said. No one else was injured.

Damage was estimated at $5,000.
