One person was injured in an overnight apartment fire in north Charlotte, officials say.
The fire was at the Ivy Hollow Apartments off Tanager Park Drive. Charlotte Fire got the call around 2 a.m. Friday. When they arrived, they said there was a fire coming from a roof on the second floor. It took 30 firefighters roughly 20 minutes to get the fire contained. The blaze was so intense it melted the siding on this apartment. Firefighters used a ladder truck and opened up the roof to ventilate the smoke.
