Why The Jim Beam Warehouse Fire Can't Be Put Out

A fire levelled two Jim Beam bourbon warehouses on Tuesday.

Business Insider reports that the fire hasn't been put out with water, because water runoff could poison wildlife in nearby rivers.

One of the warehouses in Woodford County, Kentucky, is still burning after more than two days.

It is so close to Glenns Creek, a tributary of the Kentucky River, that there is a risk to putting it out.

Spraying the fire with water could send bourbon-infused runoff into the river, killing masses of fish.
