LEXINGTON, Ky. — Two barrel warehouses at a Jim Beam aging facility burned for hours overnight in Kentucky.
WKYT reports the facility caught fire at around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday. One warehouse caught fire, which then spread to a second warehouse.
Roughly 45,000 barrels of bourbon were in one of the burning warehouses.
Officials said it’s possible the fire was caused by a lightning strike.
