Bliss, KY, goes up in flames

2013-07-22 - Bliss, Adair Co., KY - Photo by Billy Wheat. Mayor Kenneth Scott and staff oversaw a control burn of the last house in old downtown Bliss, KY, which Mayor Scott owns outright, this morning, July 22, 2013. The house was where the late Lee Grissom, founder of what is now Grissom-Martin Funeral Home lived before he moved to Columbia. His daughter, Carrie Grissom Montgomery, spent part of her childhood there. No injuries were sustained in the project, but there was one unexplained loud boom during the burn. Larry Reliford was in charge of the trackhoe and dozer which cleaned up the site. The ancient chimney is now the property of Cheryl Scott Holland. She plans to disassemble the chimney and rebuild it in Warren County, KY. Paired Photo Bliss, KY, goes up in flames: But chimney still stands by Billy Wheat.
