An elderly woman has been left homeless after her Newberry apartment caught fire Wednesday night.
At about 9 a.m. fire fighters responded to a report of a structure fire at 2001 Memorial Ave., in the Round Hill Courtyards complex.
The elderly woman, who lives alone, was being visited by her daughter when the fire began. The woman was able to help her mother get out of the apartment unharmed, according to Chief C. Dean Heinbach.
The woman will stay with relatives in the area. She was the only one displaced by the fire, according to Heinbach.
According to fire officials, the fire could have been much worse because the apartments are so close together. Many of the structures share a common wall, with a fire wall in between them.
Members of the Williamsport Bureau of Fire were assisted by the Old Lycoming Fire Company, Montoursville Fire Department, Woodward Township Volunteer Fire Company, as well as the Old Lycoming and South Williamsport EMS teams.
The cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
