Fire Destroys Eastern Kentucky Lumberyard

A raging fire wipes out an eastern Kentucky lumberyard after burning all night.

It took seven fire departments nearly 14 hours to stop the fire near a sawmill in Belfry in Pike County.

The cause is still under investigation, but the State Fire Marshal thinks the drought and dry conditions fueled the fire.

Nobody was hurt in the incident, but a near-by railroad track was shut down because of the smoke and intense flames.
