Carlisle house fire on Gross Street melts truck

Lt. Roger Hurley, Carlisle Fire Department, said the fire Friday night in the 400 block of Gross began at the back of the structure.

A fire investigator has been called, he said, not offering a guess at a probable cause.

A family dog was able to escape the flames with the couple. A pet cat is missing, Hurley said.

No injuries were reported from the fire to which crews were dispatched just before 8 p.m.

Red Cross workers have been called to assist the couple.

Hurley did not estimate the dollar loss to the structure or its contents.
