A welding workshop and barn were destroyed by a fire Saturday afternoon in Jessamine County. Officials say the fire started at about 2:00 p.m.
17-year-old Miles King spotted the fire as he was driving along Sulphur Wells Road. King says he knew the homeowners from church. He says he saw heavy smoke coming from their barn and went to their door to alert them. They were not aware of the fire and immediately called 911. Kings and one of the residents managed to rescue a horse from the barn and drove out a tractor. They tried to extinguish the blaze but the flames were too intense.
When fire crews arrived, they worked to ensure that flammable welding materials including oxygen and acetyline didn't ignite. Fire crews suspect a wood-burning stove is to blame for the fire but Kentucky State Police will work to determine the official cause.
