BLAINE VFD ablaze!


Blaine Fire Department badly damaged by fire, 5 alarm fire brings in area help


BLAINE, Ky. -- Lawrence County DES director Harold Slone had a long night and early morning today. He was on the job dealing with a fire that nearly burned down the Blaine Fire Dept., which is near the "city building".

The fire was reported this AM by WSAZ-TV with very sketch details. Slone wasn't much different. He issued a short statement this morning.

"At approx 6:13 am 911 received a report of a fire at the Blaine fire department on 201 N in Blaine. Fire departments from other areas of the county as well as surrounding counties responded to assist. The department received major damage and the cause is under investigation," Slone's message said.

There is no information available concerning the cause of the fire, but look for UPDATES and we will add it when it comes in. Slone has the incident under investigation as do other state agencies..
