I think you need an Insurance adjuster ... then possibly an electrician.


But, If you have questions about a MWBC ... apparently we're here to help

Yes, replace the whole apartment, and re-use the panel.

Re-use any wire nuts you may find also, they cost money.

There is couple thing going happend here .,

first of all .,

You will need electrician to take a look to see what is savageable or not that is between the insurance company and landlord to deal with it.

Second thing is that the word " apartment " is the keyword that it have to be done by electrician to do any repairs in the apartment.

And also any other area that is untouched by fire the drywalls will be ripped open because it will reak of smoke from fire and heat can do a bit of damage.

and I will close this thread to keep the fire out.
