Hundreds Of Fish Killed In Bourbon Warehouse Collapse Leak

posted by 700WLW Digital Staff -

Hundreds of fish are dead after bourbon and brandy from the Barton 1792 Distillery rickhouse collapse leaked into nearby streams.  Kentucky's Department of Environmental Protection says not all the 9,000 barrels that rolled out from the warehouse leaked.  Officials say about 800 fish were killed after Friday's collapse of the warehouse about 45 minutes south of Louisville in Bardstown.  The Nelson County Fire and Rescue chief said crews were able to catch some leaking alcohol before it ran downhill into streams, but it flowed for more than three hours before it was controlled.
