Russia Road fire cause undetermined

CARLISLE TWP. — Investigators have ruled the cause of a fire at a Russia Road home as undetermined, according to Carlisle Township Fire Chief Kevin Dembiec.

The fire, which started Monday in the basement of a home at 41591 Russia Road, caused extensive damage. No one was home when the fire started, and a pet cat ran into the garage to escape the blaze.

Dembiec said because there is no “clear-cut cause” that started the fire, it will be ruled undetermined. It will remain under investigation should more information be available, he said.

Dembiec said the fire is not considered suspicious.
