A fire in Breckinridge County, Kentucky shut down the town of Hardinsburg for a while Friday morning. Investigators say the fire began before 3:00 in the morning in the building of a sewing company called Galante Studio Incorporated.
Fire departments from all over Breckinridge County worked to contain the fire and keep it from spreading to nearby businesses. "All we do know is that there was an explosion and it was heard pretty well over part of the town here," said Chief Jerry Martin with Hardinsburg City Fire Department. He said the explosion blew off the top of the back wall and roof of the building.
Water also severely damaged the 36-year-old Thomas Brite Law Office next door to the sewing company. "We were able to get our computers and most of our back up and things of this nature out of the office," owner Tom Brite said.
Fire officials shut down streets in Downtown and most businesses including the Breckinridge County Courthouse and Hardinsburg City Hall were without power all day. Firefighters say they also had a tough time fighting the cold temperatures. "A lot of the equipment was freezing up we were fighting with that, fire hydrants being froze," the Chief said.
Investigators say the historic Galante Studio that employed 40 workers is completely destroyed. Bob Upchurch who owns the sewing company says he lost everything in the fire and is not sure if he will rebuild. Business for Brite's law office will continue even without a building. "You just have to go on, we've got two or three real estate closings coming up Monday and we hope we can serve the clients accordingly," Brite said.
Arson investigators have not released a cause of the fire.
