Twenty residents at an apartment complex in Matthews are getting assistance after a fire.

It broke out around 11 o'clock Saturday night on Paces Avenue, that's near Matthews Township Parkway.

Fire investigators tell WBTV the blaze started in a rear upstairs unit because of a possible electrical malfunction.
