CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Officials said 22 families were displaced after a fire at an apartment complex Sunday morning in Charlotte.
WSOC reported that the fire occurred 8:30 a.m. on the third floor of the rear of the Tyvola Center Apartments.
Authorities said no residents were hurt in the blaze. Around 70 firefighters responded.
