CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP/CBS Charlotte) — Two Charlotte firefighters have been hurt while fighting a fire at an apartment complex.

One firefighter was trapped by a partial roof collapse. Another firefighter was injured during ground operations. Both firefighters were treated and released from Charlotte hospitals.
No other injuries were reported, but 22 families have been displaced as a result of the fire.
Brisley says the fire damaged about two dozen units. Damages were estimated at about $500,000.
