Minor fire at Charlotte’s women’s shelter

No injuries and no significant damage was reported Sunday evening in a fire at the Salvation Army’s Women’s Shelter in northwest Charlotte, authorities say.

The fire was reported about 9 p.m. at the shelter, on Spratt Street.

A spokeswoman for the shelter said the fire was minor and started in a clothes dryer. She said shelter residents were evacuated briefly, as a safety procedure, then were permitted to return.

Normal operations resumed a short time later, the spokeswoman said.
