Investigators Searching For Cause Of Building Fire In East Charlotte; Deadly Fire In SC;

Good morning on this Groundhog Day...Thursday, February 2.  John Carter here from the WBTV News Morning Show.

A lot of news to bring you this morning starting at 4:30.

Cam Man Ron Lee is live from east Charlotte where investigators are on the scene of a fire that destroyed a building.

In South Carolina, an overnight fire has led to the death of one person.

A lot is going on today in Campaign 2012...both locally and nationally.  There are reports that Donald Trump is going to endorse GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich.  In North Carolina, GOP gubernatorial candidate Pat McCrory is going into full-campaign mode, while democrats are awaiting word from Erskine Bowles on whether he'll run for governor.

We'll take a look at the life of one of the most iconic figures in television history...the man who brought us Soul Train has died.  And one of the best-known and well-loved figures in the world of boxing has died.

In sports...a very bad night for the Charlotte Bobcats.  The team lost its tenth game in a row and had its lowest scoring output of the season.

We had rain overnight.  Al Conklin will tell you what to expect as you head out the door this morning.  All that and so much more when you join us this morning from 4:30 to 7:00.  See you then!
