Russell Springs Fire Dept. responds to fire/explosion Thursday night

The Russell Springs Fire Department was called to the scene of a fire off North Highway 127 near Hemlock Drive Thursday evening a little before 8 p.m.

Crews were called because of a possible explosion, but Emergency Management Director H.M Bottom said several pallets caught fire and the explosion was likely cans of paint or a drum, among other possibilities, that would’ve caused an explosion sound.

The cause of the blaze is still unknown at this time, and fire crews were able to quickly contain the fire to a small area minutes upon arrival.

Below are a few photos from the scene.
