    Official: Lightning caused Jim Beam bourbon warehouse fire

    The Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet says lightning sparked the fire at a Jim Beam warehouse that caused bourbon to leak into creeks and rivers.

    News outlets report cabinet spokesman John Mura confirmed the cause Wednesday. The fire started July 2, destroying the Woodford County warehouse and about 45,000 barrels of bourbon.

    Some alcohol flowed from Glenns Creek to the Kentucky River, and then to the Ohio River where, fish died. Jim Beam and environmental officials used equipment to restore oxygen to the water in an attempt to minimize the number of fish killed.

    The cabinet said on Facebook that the alcohol plume is dissipating as it moves along the Ohio River.

    Mura says the cabinet plans to issue Jim Beam a notice of violation that could lead to a fine.


    Jim Beam to be fined for bourbon fire that hurt rivers, fish

    Authorities say Jim Beam will be fined for the warehouse fire that contaminated nearby waters with bourbon and killed fish.

    WKYT-TV that there will be a penalty. He says the state Department of Fish & Wildlife may also fine the company. The cost of the fines was unclear as of Wednesday.

    A lightning strike set the Woodford County warehouse on fire last week and destroyed about 45,000 barrels of bourbon. The site burned for days and runoff filled with alcohol and firefighting chemicals bled into nearby rivers and creeks, removing oxygen from the water and killing fish.

    The cabinet said the nearly 23-mile alcohol plume moved through the Kentucky River and into the Ohio River, where it is dissipating.

    Act of God

    In the law of contracts, an act of God may be interpreted as an implied defense under the rule of impossibility or impracticability. If so, the promise is discharged because of unforeseen occurrences, which were unavoidable and would result in insurmountable delay, expense, or other material breach.

    -------------------------------------------------------

    Can someone explain how Jim Beam was supposed to know that lightening was going to strike and cause the fire??

    Maybe there is some kind of expectation that an accident could occur and that a berm around the Warehouse would have been 'reasonable'?

    The next thing you know is they'll be charged with arson.

    Corporations should be responsible for damage done by their operations.

    Why don't you tell us the next specific location where lightning will strike.

    The damage wasn't caused by their operations.

    Rather then speculate, how about showing something to support your concern(s).

    This is looking like a FEEL GOOD approach, by those on the "Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet".

    But as a "lawyer" one would think that you would already be aware that the damage WASN'T done by their "operations".

    Your request requires you to have a brain to receive the explanation. Sorry.

    So basically, you have NOTHING and are just looking for attention.

    You asked for an 'explanation'. That was my best guess.
    USF. Don't lose too much sleep over this. Jim Beam can afford top echelon Attorneys. (Probably have them on Retainer)

    Why not use Google to ease your mind, over this; because a "GUESS" is not an explanation??

    Are you unwilling or incapable of educating yourself??

    As to your OP, I can't explain why they would be fined unless someone can explain to me why an entity should be fined for something their actions didn't cause.

    Yet your brain can't function at a level to explain it.
