CORBIN, Ky. (WKYT) - Crews are working to put out a fire at a Corbin hardware store.

Corbin firefighters are at W.D. Bryant & Sons hardware store after receiving a call about a fire Friday morning.

The building is in downtown Corbin on Main Street.

Firefighters say they are unaware of any injuries.

Investigators believe the fire started in a back room, and witnesses said they heard several large pops, which may have been the sound of paint cans exploding.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacoo, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has responded to the scene of the fire.

This is the second time federal agents have responded to a southern Kentucky business after crews discovered an incendiary device at a Williamsburg Tractor Supply Company.
