FALLSBURG, KY. — Residents say they woke up this Christmas Eve morning to a loud explosion and a very bad smell, which kinda smelled like burning diesel. There is a black crude oil substance in the creek, which can be seen around the school. It is up Austin Branch and oil is all over the fish and ducks. The EPA from Frankfort Kentucky is investigating it right now.
Local DES director Chris Cox has not responded to questions about the situation as of yet.
Local residents of Blaine, Helen and daughter Shalon Holt managed to catch a couple of the oil drenched ducks, one was a Peking, and bathed them.
This is what they do, try to save animals. They will try to catch the rest tomorrow to bathe.
