Drew Chandler, Woodford County Emergency Management Director, told our sister station WKYT that two barrels in the facility, which held approximately 45,000 barrels, caught fire around 11:30 p.m Tuesday night.

The Bluegrass Emergency Response Team and fire crews from Winchester, Kentucky, brought in a foam material to help smother the flames, which continued to burn Wednesday morning.

Crews are fighting a massive fire at the Jim Beam facility in Woodford County, Kentucky.

The company has not said how many bottles of whiskey were lost, but reports estimate the company can make between 150 and 210 standard-sized bottles per barrel.

"I'd prefer that Neymar didn't return to Barca", he said on Onda Cero's El Transistor radio programme, as cited by Sport . We've worked hard to maintain the values of La Liga and we don't want to change that image.

Chandler says one warehouse initially caught fire with flames spreading to the second structure.

There are no reported injuries at this time.

Officials said it's possible the fire was caused by a lightning strike.

In addition, a local business called Woodford Feed brought in sand to build embankments around the damaged rickhouses to prevent leakage into nearby creeks. Crews were able to put one out, but the other kept burning for hours.
