Monday morning apartment fire
Fire in a Lititz apartment building Monday morning displaced at least two residents and caused about $35,000 damage, an official said.
The electrical fire broke out just before 7 a.m. in a bathroom ceiling of a second-floor apartment in a Pennwick Terrace apartment at 47 Pennwick Drive, Brunnerville Fire Chief Lynn Mearig said.
Residents evacuated on their own, and no one was injured.
Arriving firefighters saw no flames, but smoke was pouring out of the eaves and soffits below the roof, Mearig said.
When they pulled apart the ceiling, they found the fire, and it was moving into the attic. Firefighters stopped the blaze from spreading.
“It could have been a lot worse,” he said.
Tenants of the burned apartment and another apartment downstairs were not allowed to return to their homes Monday because of the damage, Mearig said.
He didn’t know exactly how many people lived in the two apartments.
Damage was estimated at $30,000 to the structure and $5,000 to contents, Mearig said. Most of the damage was to the second-floor apartment.
Other apartments in the complex were not damaged, he said.
