Apartment Fire Considered Suspicious

Police are searching for a couple they say set their apartment on fire, then took off.

Carlisle Police are searching for Joey Trimble, 37, and Felicia Peterson.

Police say the two came home from a trip to find items stolen from their apartment on Main Street.

After accusing neighbors of stealing, police think Trimble and Peterson set their own clothes on fire inside their apartment, then fled.

Their apartment was heavily damaged. Two other units inside Hall Apartments, which are 125 years old, had minor damage.

A firefighter and apartment manager suffered minor injuries and were released from the hospital.

Police think Trimble and Peterson may be in Paris. At this point, they are only wanted for questioning.
