Authorities say nobody was hurt in a fire at an apartment complex in Mattoon. The Mattoon Tower had to be evacuated during the fire, which was reported about 3:30pm Thursday.

It took police and firefighters about an hour to help all of the residents evacuate the building. Some residents have disabilities and needed extra help. The residents were taken to a Masonic Lodge building across the street from the apartment building while firefighters battled the fire.
