In Louisville there is in progress a Distillery warehouse fire . 2 alarm in Shively . They did not say whose it is , The area is near Stitzel Weller and Brown Forman



From the 84 WHAS Newsroom...
(Louisville, KY) -- Fire Crews from Louisville and Shively are on the scene of a warehouse fire near Seventh Street and Arcade. It is reported an old distillery warehouse caught fire shortly after 4:30pm Sunday. There are no reports of injuries. No has there been a cause for the fire


This is Brown Forman end of town , it is a good way over to Limestone lane where Stitzel Weller is at. Yellowstone had a Distillery near here, they ceased operating in 1990, but I think all of it has been removed. I'll check the news in a bit , Maybe this building was empty, we can hope.

The building belonged to a company headquartered in Fla, So it's not BF . It was empty and abandoned. It has collasped and the fire is under control. However it is a very big fire, it is covering Louisville with smoke down to Churchill Downs .

Hey Bobby,

The location kinda scared me a bit...Glad to hear that no one lost "another" warehouse full of whiskey...

Did ya know that the Bernheim-Heaven Hill Distillery is located, down the road Brown Foreman Plant in Louisville? Last time I was there (visiting Craig) there was a Buffalo Trace truck there...I have seen this more than once...I made it a point to ask, why was a Buffalo Trace rig sittin the Lot? Craig told me that they were picking up a load of the old whiskey that is stored in the "brick" warehouses...

I was sitting here with the radio on and it came on . I'm glad it's only the loss of an abandoned building as it turns out. Didn't Buffalo Trace distill some bourbon for Diageo for Old Charter or something?
