CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The back of an east Charlotte apartment building is charred after a two-alarm fire Tuesday afternoon.
Firefighters were called to a complex on Shamrock Drive.
Investigators believe the fire started in a small storage room on the back of the property and then spread into the attic of one of the buildings.
Chopper 9 flew over the Windsor Harbor apartment complex where a hole in the roof of the building was visible.
Firefighters arrived around 3 p.m. and put the fire out quickly and nobody was injured.
The Red Cross is helping eight families find places to stay.
Fire investigators said the damage is estimated at $50,000 to eight units.
