LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Massive flames broke out Friday at a business with nearly 50 years of history in Oldham County. The sparks started flying around eight Friday morning in a fire kiln of Northland Corporation Hardwoods in La Grange.
Firefighters tell WDRB News that 35,000 board feet of poplar hard wood was stored there.
Maj. Keith Smith of the La Grange Fire Dept. said, "This room is basically stacked floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall with lumber, so the fire itself is very deep-seated."
Firefighters had to close Kentucky 146 between Fort Pickens Road and Spann Lane near Louisville, as they needed clear access to bring water to the scene.
The business operates a kiln drying process of hard wood, and the loss is considered significant.
According to the Secretary of State's office, the Northland Corporation has been in business since 1964.
Sixty firefighters from seven departments in Oldham and Henry County battled the flames, and they encountered some problems, as Maj. Smith explains: "Some of the problems were, we had to shut power down to the kiln area and the doors were operated by the electricity, so the fire was contained between that area and so it had a little extra time to grow."
The fire was continued to one building at the lumber yard and put out before noon. Investigators are still looking for the exact cause, though they're thinking it's an electrical or mechanical malfunction. They say there are no signs of foul play, and no one was hurt.
