Redd’s Smokehouse BBQ will be closed until further notice after a fire destroyed the restaurant’s kitchen Monday night.

In a Facebook post Monday night, the restaurant said that one of the smokers caught fire, which “caused a pretty intense fire” in the kitchen of the restaurant in the 100 block of North Hanover Street.

“Luckily, everyone was OK and, thanks to the hard work of many local fire departments and first responders, the damage was contained to our kitchen and basement,” the post read.

The post added that the owners are assessing the situation and are hopeful for a full recovery.

The post also expressed thanks to the Carlisle community and to two neighboring businesses, “Market Cross Pub & Brewery Carlisle and Chef Exclusive who have offered us love, support, and help over these next few days.”

The fire closed a portion of North Hanover Street for a couple of hours as crews worked the fire.
