Fire heavily damages west Charlotte sports bar

The Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of a two-alarm fire that heavily damaged a local sports bar overnight in west Charlotte. 

Around 2:15 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 29 firefighters received the call about a fire located at Bullies Bar on Wilkinson Boulevard. 

Upon arrival, crews observed heavy smoke coming from the roof. The west Charlotte fire station is only about half a mile away from the sports bar, so crews were able to arrive within three minutes of the 911 call. About 50 firefighters worked to put out the flames. 

Fire officials said Bullies Bar was closed when the fire broke out. No injuries have been reported.
