Fire At Iconic NC BBQ Restaurant

Red Bridges' BBQ Lodge in Shelby, NC, caught fire over the weekend, and sustained some damage in the kitchen:

A kitchen fire damaged Red Bridges Barbecue Lodge, in the 2000 block of East Dixon Boulevard. The fire was reported shortly after midnight, and no injuries were reported.

The restaurant was closed at the time.

Damage was limited to the kitchen area, according to Shelby fire officials. Their crews, along with crews from the Cleveland Volunteer Fire Department, put out the blaze.

Red Bridges Barbecue is an iconic North Carolina eatery. It has operated since 1946. The restaurant normally is closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

Hopefully it will get back up and running soon. I've eaten there myself, the barbecue is first-rate.
