Fire at Amazon Fulfillment Center sends workers home

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A piece of machinery at the Amazon Fulfillment Center on Trade St. caught fire this morning, forcing workers to evacuate.

Officials say that a cardboard baling machine caught fire. Employees were evacuated and sent home, and the morning and evening shifts were both canceled. The reason for the cancellation was the smoke odor in the building.

We have a crew on their way to the scene and will keep you updated as we get more information.
