Fire at Bourbon Warehouse Leads to Fish Kill in Kentucky River

A fire at a warehouse containing Jim Beam bourbon, in Versailles, Kentucky, has led to a mass fish kill in the Kentucky River, caused by alcoholic runoff.

The Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet said on July 7 that a 23-mile alcohol plume had caused the kill.

Its leading edge was between Owenton and Carrollton.

The plume was expected to dissipate on Monday, the agency said, when it reached the larger Ohio River.

A kill count was being carried out by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.
