LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A large fire in Nelson county, leaves major damage to a local community center.

Firefighters responded to a fire at the Boston Community Center on Lebanon Junction Rd. in Nelson County.

BCC is a community events center and residents stopped by throughout the day to see the damage. 

I used to be with the fire department," said city chaplain Terry Troutman, "I've been to a lot of fires and seen a lot of things, but it's normally somebody else's and this is personal. This is not quite like your house, but this is home and it affects a lot of people."

Troutman says the Community Center recently bought a new fryer to help pay bills for the community center. Fortunately, he says, it wasn't damaged in the fire. 

Officials don't know how the fire started, but they no one was injured. 

Residents say they are hopeful the Community Center will eventually reopen.
