  • Tire fire quickly extinguished

    A small fire broke out Wednesday afternoon at Lincoln Parkway Auto Sales on Miller Road in Hodgenville.

    According to LaRue County firefighter Michael Key, the fire started because a barrel of burning trash was too close to a pile of tires. The tires caught fire and, because they were near one of the buildings, the fire department was called.

    Key said the owner, Rocky Wilson, had gotten the fire mostly under control when he got there, so he canceled all units except one small truck that doused the rubble with water to be sure it was put out.
