The Start of the Southpark Fire

Segment 1, May 20th,2023

Bill Bartee, host of the Carolina Outdoors, describes his phone call on Thursday morning (May 18th, 2023).  After arriving to work at Jesse Brown’s, the outdoor store located in the Southpark area of Charlotte.

The caller said, “There’s a lot of smoke coming from your area.  What’s going on?”

Bartee describes his circling the building to find the smoke which quickly accelerated into a large, five-alarm fire.

Jesse Brown’s & the Carolina Outdoors team all wish the best for those affected by this fire tragedy in Southpark.
