Default Catastrophy in Kentucky

Fire Destroys Beam Ky. Bourbon Warehouse



Flames engulfed a seven-story bourbon warehouse Monday, sending alcohol-fueled flames more than 100 feet in the air.

The Jim Beam warehouse collapsed about two hours after the fire was reported at 3 p.m. and continued burning. The company said the metal-and-wood structure held about 19,000 barrels of bourbon, or less than 2 percent of its bourbon inventory.

What a loss, could it be that terrorists have found our weak spot?

I was getting very nervous at first, until the less than 2 percent of its bourbon inventory statement.

That sucks!

"Bourbon from the warehouse ran off into a nearby creek and caught fire. Firefighters began to dam up the area, and enlisted the aid of OSO member "Mama Tryed" and his wife. "Mitch and Tracy really saved the day. I have never seen people guzzle booze like that. I was actually scared they were going to head for the warehouses that WEREN'T burning." said Fire Chief Anthony Mattingly."
OSO comes through again!!! Way to go!!!

The Wild Turkey people had one Burn down too. Seems like that Whiskey making has a high risk too it. Flammable Material just sitting around in Wood Barrels no less.

I can't believe you guys saw this. If you saw the footage from one of the helicopters, you saw my plant. The burning warehouse was only 500 yards from me!!! I could feel the heat...

800,000 gallons of bourbon destroyed. It is still on fire. The fire was caused by lightning during a storm here yesterday.

I guess 800,000 gallons of burbon makes a lot of fuel.
