A two-alarm fire broke out at an east Charlotte aparment complex Friday afternoon. 

The fire occurred at Coventry Woods in the 4600 block of Coronado Drive. Charlotte Fire reported a two-story blaze, and photos show heavy smoke pouring out of the damaged building. 

More than 50 firefighters were called to the scene to control the blaze. Two cats were rescued from the flames, but two cats died. 

A neighbor tells FOX 46 that once she saw the flames, she went banging on doors to tell people to evacuate.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
