Warehouse Full Of Jim Beam Barrels Catches Fire

2 Jim Beam bourbon warehouses catch on fire

Crews were able to extinguish one, but another has continued burning for hours. One official said "With the bourbon spirits, there's just a lot of material to burn". The whiskey proceeded to rush out of the building and into the nearby Glenns Creek, which feeds into the Kentucky River. He speculated crews could be on scene until late Wednesday night. This is likely to represents a significant environmental impact on the local wildlife, given the massive amount of spirits involved. Chandler said the fire had been way too big and hot to get a fire investigator near it. "And it has made its way into the Kentucky River".

The runoff is also expected to create low dissolved oxygen levels, which could have a serious impact on the aquatic life in the river, including substantial fish kills. This could save the contamination of water which is availed for drinking goal.

Beam Suntory, the spokesman of the company sent an email, claiming the barrels contained young whiskey. As per reports, 45,000 barrels are destroyed which caused around millions of dollars at stake. USA whiskey exports slowed during the second half of 2018, after trading partners including the European Union enacted retaliatory tariffs of up to 25 per cent, raising the cost of American-made whiskey and bourbon. If all the barrels held bourbon, that would be a loss of at least 6 million bottles, the Louisville newspaper reported.

Michael Fortney suggested that the fire could have been caused by lightning that rolled through the area Tuesday night.
