Fire at Carrboro apartments causes property damage A fire late Wednesday at a Carrboro independent living facility caused about $45,000 worth of damage. A single sprinkler extinguished the bedroom fire at Carolina Springs Apartments on West Poplar Avenue, according to a press release from the Carrboro Fire-Rescue Department. Crews evacuated the retirement home but later allowed everyone back into the building at about 1:30 a.m. Thursday, except the occupants of the involved apartment and the apartment below it. Carolina Springs has 144 elderly residents. No one was hurt, according to the release, and the two displaced occupants stayed with family in the area.
