Factory catches fire in Winchester industrial park

By  | 

WINCHESTER, Ky. (WKYT)- A factory caught fire Thursday night in the industrial park in Winchester.

Crews were called out to Contech Engineered Solutions just off of Paris Road and I-64.

Firefighters say one of the production machines caught fire. The flames spread up to the roof, firefighters said.

Part of the roof collapsed, and there were employees inside the building, but the fire chief says everyone made it out safely.

Crews don't know the extent of the damage to the building, but the fire chief said it was unlikely employees at Contech would return to work Friday.
