US 68 is closed today in Greensburg to allow crew to extricate a fire truck from a basement. 

The fire truck was parked at the car lot on the corner of Legion Park Road and US 68 when it broke through into an existing building's basement.

Cranes are scheduled to remove the truck and will block US 68 from 8am until the truck is removed (expected by afternoon sometime). 

Passenger vehicles can take the alley behind the downtown funeral home according to Greensburg's Mayor. Commercial traffic will need to detour using the following routes: US 68 to KY 218, KY 218 to KY 1464, KY 1464 to KY 88 then KY 61 back to Greensburg.
