Progress by fire.

The Mears farmhouse on US 13A was burned to the ground last week to make way for construction of a 22,000-square-foot women’s health center. The center at the Mears Campus, across from the Seaford Post Office, will house offices for obstetricians-gynecologists, a nurse practitioner and midwives as well as a diagnostic imaging center for Nanticoke Health Services. Firemen from Seaford, Blades and Harrington were on the scene to control the fire.
