Jim Beam Warehouse With 40,000 Barrels Goes up in Flames
A Jim Beam warehouse caught fire late Tuesday and firefighters might be there all night long fighting the blaze.
According to CNN, the warehouse is in Versailles Kentucky and it caught fire around 11:30 last night. According to the report there were approximately 40,000 barrels of bourbon inside the warehouse which has partially collapsed.
CNN reported that a second warehouse caught fire, but that blaze was contained.
The report also says that there was lightning in the area Tuesday night and that quite possibly could have ignited the fire.
Drew Chandler, the Woodford County Emergency Management chief, told CNN the building is about the length of a football field and at least six stories high.
