No injuries in 3 Charlotte residential fires

No injuries were reported in three residential fires reported in Charlotte on Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning.

A family of five was displaced in a blaze that broke out about 9:15 a.m. Wednesday at an apartment in the 2500 block of North Pine Street, according to Charlotte fire officials.

Firefighters found smoke coming from the two-story apartment when they arrived. Officials said the blaze apparently started on the second floor of the unit and caused about $15,000 damage. Investigators are working to determine a cause of the fire.

The American Red Cross said it provided support for the three adults, two children and pets that lived in the apartment.

The other blazes were Tuesday evening.

A fire broke out about 6:30 p.m. at a home in the 2600 block of Mason Hill Place, off Mallard Creek Road. Officials said it took a crew of 23 firefighters less than 20 minutes to subdue the blaze.

Then around 7:45 p.m., firefighters were called to a home in the 5600 block of Hollirose Drive, off Albemarle Road between Lawyers and Harrisburg roads. A crew of 23 firefighters needed less than 10 minutes to put out that blaze.

The American Red Cross said a family of two adults and a child was displaced in the Hollirose Drive fire.
