Thousands of fish perish after fire at Jim Beam warehouse

The Jim Beam warehouse fire in Kentucky has begun to cause environmental damage to the local wildlife, as thousands of dead fish have littered the Kentucky River and are floating downstream.

Environmental officials in Kentucky say the water used to put out the blaze that consumed 45,000 barrels of bourbon has reached the nearby creek and eventually the river.

"I don’t believe I would want to swim in it right now. In a few days when all this passes, it will be fine," local resident Kim Strohmeier told WKYT. "A lot of fisherman in both the Elkhorn Creek and the river here...folks aren’t going to have much success fishing in the river in the next few weeks”
