Firefighters rescue dog from 2-alarm south Charlotte apartment fire

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — More than 40 firefighters worked to put out a two-alarm fire early Friday morning at an apartment complex in south Charlotte.

Fire crews were called around 6:30 a.m. to Quail Valley on Carmel on Quail Wood Drive, right off Carmel Road, and saw heavy smoke coming from a building.

Crews had to evacuate some residents from their units but nobody was hurt. Firefighters were able to rescue a dog.

"We had her since she was three months old," the pet's owner told Channel 9. "We got her from the pound. We got her for my son for Christmas and he's had her ever since and she's only two now."

In total, 25 people were displaced by the fire, which damaged six units.

Investigators said it took firefighters 30 minutes to get the fire under control and were working to determine where it originated.
