LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Federal investigators need the public's help with their investigation into what started the fire that destroyed a local fire department.


ATF investigators say they're hoping someone will come forward with information or any surveillance video from the area -- especially between midnight and 5 a.m. - on Aug. 5, when the fire occurred.


At this time, the cause of the fire remains undetermined.

Mt. Eden lost four fire trucks in the fire, as well as gear and equipment. Preliminary estimates place the total value of the loss at well over $1 million.

The fire left 23 volunteer firefighters without gear and the town of Mt. Eden without emergency responders.

This fire is being investigated by the ATF Louisville Field Division with the assistance of the Kentucky State Police, the Kentucky State Fire Marshal's Office and the Spencer County Sheriff's Department.

Anyone with information is asked to call ATF Arson / Fire Hotline at 1-888-ATF-FIRE (1-888-283-3473). Callers may remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward if the information provided leads to a determination of the cause of the fire.
