'It has been a really long day.' | Crews work massive fire at Campbellsville business

Campbellsville Fire Dispatch said the fire started at around 1 p.m. at Wholesale Hardwood Interiors.

CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. — Crews are still working to control a massive fire at a Campbellsville business.

Campbellsville Fire Dispatch said the fire started at around 1 p.m. on Dec. 2 at Wholesale Hardwood Interiors. Firefighters from five different counties reported to the fire, which has continued to burn as of 4 p.m.

Investigators do not know how the fire started at this time, but said there are no reported injuries. Video from the scene shows heavy smoke above the building.

The Campbellsville/Taylor County Fire Department posted an update on Facebook around 11 a.m. on Dec. 3, saying it was still ongoing and that while no firefighters have been injured, several personal protective equipment was damaged. 

"We are very fortunate no employees was injured but we are deeply saddened by the loss of a major manufacturing company that provided jobs to 125 employees to our community," the post said.

Earlier in the morning, the department thanked people for their encouragement and donations.

"It has been a really long day," the post said. According to the post, nearly 100 firefighters from 13 different departments worked together to put out the fire.

The post said the firefighters were set with food and drinks but had some suggestions on a couple other ways people can contribute if they want to help.

  • Thank you first responders and public servants
  • For financial donations, consider donating to Toys for Tots, Crusade for Children or Supporting Heroes

"Remember, out of the 100 or so firemen there, the largest majority will receive no compensation for their time. And while they know that when they sign up, it’s important for our communities to know, we all have to help each other when the need arises," the post said.
