Two firefighters were hurt Sunday morning as a three-alarm fire gutted an apartment building off West Tyvola Road.
Firefighters say they saw smoke and flames when they got to the scene on Glendale Chase Court.
Capt. Robert Brisley of the Charlotte Fire Department said firefighters rescued a family from the top floor of the three-story building using the ladder. One resident tells WBTV a neighbor knocked on his door after seeing flames shoot through air vents.
Part of the roof of the building collapsed. It took firefighters about an hour to put out the flames.
Captain Brisley said two firefighters were injured during the course of working the fire. One was trapped under the roof that collapsed. Both firefighters were treated Sunday and released from the hospital.
Investigators are still working to determine what caused the fire.
The Red Cross is assisting all 22 families displaced by the fire. The agency says it is provide assistance for food, shelter, clothing and other immediate needs.
Firefighters estimate the smoke and flames caused $500,000 in damage.
