Delaware State Police troopers pulled two people from a burning home in New Castle County.

The fire broke out around 6:00 a.m. along the 2100 block of Silverside Road in Brandywine Hundred.

State troopers arrived first and rescued a man and woman from the home.

Both suffered smoke inhalation and were treated and released from Chistianacare Wilmington Hospital.

Investigators say the flames originated in a second floor bedroom and was caused by discarded smoking materials.

Residents were not able to return to the residence and are staying with family.
