VERSAILLES, Ky. - Firefighters in Kentucky are trying to extinguish a burning Jim Beam warehouse filled with about 45,000 barrels of bourbon.

Woodford County Emergency Management Director Drew Chandler tells WKYT-TV that two barrel warehouses caught fire late Tuesday. Crews were able to put one out, but the other kept burning for hours.


Chandler says it may have been caused by lightning.

A nearby road has been shut down as crews fight the blaze. Chandler estimates firefighters will be working at the scene late into Wednesday night.
[sniff]

All those innocent barrels of bourbon.....they.....they...they just didn't deserve this.

Not a fan of Jim Beam, so not great loss...

Now, if this had been Maker's Mark, or Woodford Reserve that had this issue, I'd be buying out the local liquor store...

I am so upset by this that I am opening my home to any survivors. It will be sanctuary, free from fires, and certainly the survivors will be cared for and always have a roof over them.

There's a reason Jim Beam is the well bourbon at a lot of restaurants.

SOOOO many better ones out there.

If it's good enough for Mila Kunis, it's good enough for me to stalk up on. Yes, I spelled it right.

While that is certainly true, I will always be a Beam fan. God knows I've drank enough of it over the years to kill a normal person.

As an adult, I wonder if I should have been more concerned about my parents when I was a kid. My mom collected the Limited Edition Beam's Choice bottles and I know that every single one of them on display was EMPTY.
