An apparent lightning strike at the Heaven Hill Distillery in Bardstown caused a blaze that destroyed almost a million gallons of Jim Beam Bourbon.
Officials say that no one was injured in the blaze, and the bourbon was only a tiny percentage of the current stock of nearly 40,000,000 gallons aging in Heaven Hill's inventory, but the blaze was apparently spectacular, and the story has been picked up across the globe.
Local coverage is available from numerous Kentucky sources, including WAVE-3, the Courier-Journal, and 32WLKY. In addition, the story is being covered as far away the United Kingdom: http://www.guardian.co.uk/uslatest/story/0,1282,-2989590,00.html.
