Furniture Factory Heavily Damaged By Fire

Fire heavily damaged an Eastern Kentucky furniture factory early Friday morning.

The fire broke out at Flat Rock Furniture on Highway 421 in Jackson County.

All four of Jackson County’s fire departments responded as well as departments from nearby counties.

The middle part of the factory has heavy damage.

No one was working at the time. There are no reports of injuries.

Three years ago, Midsouth Electronics burned to the ground in Jackson County, leaving hundreds without jobs.

    I really think it was a set up to put the place on fire for insurance purpose. The management of the company needs to be investigated. This is rediculous!

    Just wondering if some of the management had any ties with the old Kentucky Woodcrafts there.I worked there a few years and it had a history of catching afire itself before it went under.

    Do you think it was damaged for insurance purpose? It's putting peoples safety and their jobs in danger. The company should compensate their workers for missed wages and or find them new jobs.

    I have family that works there and they are all devastated by this. These people are out of a job so have a heart. There is no comparison to mid south.

    They probably won`t build back either, wonder how their profit was, Mid South made out like the bandits they were.
