(CBS Charlotte) — Shortly after 8:30 last night, Charlotte Firefighters were dispatched to a fire at an apartment complex.

More than 60 firefighters battled the blaze that quickly spread through a 22-unit building at Matthews Crossing Apartments.

As the fire raged through the attic and flames shot out of the back of the unit, residents had to evacuate. In all, 21 of the 22 units were occupied, but all residents made it out of their apartment homes safely.

Firefighters were still on scene this morning. The cause of the fire is currently being investigated.
