Jim Beam warehouses filled with 45K barrels of bourbon catch fire in Kentucky
Wednesday, July 3, 2019
VERSAILLES, Ky. (AP) — Firefighters in Kentucky are trying to extinguish a burning Jim Beam warehouse filled with about 45,000 barrels of bourbon.
Woodford County Emergency Management Director Drew Chandler tells WKYT-TV that two barrel warehouses caught fire around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday. Crews were able to put one out, but the other kept burning for hours.
Chandler says it may have been caused by lightning.
A nearby road has been shut down as crews fight the blaze. WLKY was told the warehouse would likely be on fire for "quite some time," and Chandler estimates firefighters will be working at the scene late into Wednesday night.
At noon on Wednesday, more than 12 hours later, it was still smoldering.
