HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (5/13/19) — Mortons Gap, St. Charles and Earlington Volunteer fire departments were called out to a building fire along the 1300 block of Flat Creek Road in Mortons Gap this afternoon.

There were explosions heard from inside the garage-like structure just after 4 p.m., possibly from propane tanks stored inside.

The building appeared to be heavily damaged from the heat of flames in addition to a pickup truck parked nearby. The building is in close proximity to the Mortons Gap home of the Solise family that was unaffected by the blaze.

The cause of the fire is unknown.
