Carlisle Fire: Apartment Repairs May Take Up to 4 Weeks

A fire on Sunday evening at the Northside Village Apartments in Carlisle has displaced around 130 residents, with management indicating it could take two to four weeks for them to return. The 119-unit complex, managed by Statewide Property Management and fully leased, experienced water damage from firefighting efforts, although no interior fire damage was reported.

Efforts to accelerate repairs are underway, with hopes some residents can return within the week. Power has mostly been restored, and residents were allowed to retrieve belongings under escort on Monday. The Red Cross has established a shelter, but it was unused the night of the fire.

Renters are required to have insurance, expected to cover temporary accommodations. The fire, which caused visible damage to a second-floor balcony, reportedly started from improperly disposed charcoal. The apartments, part of a redevelopment project on the site of the former Masland factory, were completed last summer.
