Three businesses were damaged and a portion of N.C. 16 was shut down Thursday, Oct. 7 after an early morning fire. Union County 911 first got a call about the fire just before 5:30 a.m. at 201 North Broome Street. Authorities had not determined the cause of the fire by presstime, as the blaze spread to Universal Karate Studio, Waxhaw In-and-out and Leo’s Closet. Both the karate studio and Waxhaw In-and-out sustained major damage, while Leo’s will only need minor repairs. As fire crews battled the blaze, N.C. 16 between Blythe Mill Boulevard and Howie Mine Road closed for more than four hours, reopening after 10 a.m.
