LG&E Fire Leaves Two Injured

Posted By Arnold & Itkin || 30-Oct-2015

A welding fire broke out at the LG&E Mill Creek Station plant in Jefferson County, causing serious burns to two contract workers. When officials first received the call, they believed it was an explosion. They quickly responded, arriving on scene with five fire engines and 20 personnel that were ready to deal with anything from hazardous materials to structural collapse.

While the building damage was very limited, the two individuals sustained serious burns in the fire. The building they were working on was closed down for general maintenance. There were other workers in the area, but only the two suffered injuries.

Contractors Taken to University Hospital in Chaotic Scene

Officials say when they arrived on scene, it was slightly chaotic. By the time they got there, the ERT of LG&E had already transferred the victims to another area and was providing basic treatment. Soon after that, the workers were taken to University Hospital for medical care. Initial reports suggest that the workers had burn injuries covering 30% of their body. The cause of the fire remains unknown. PRP Fire and LG&E are reportedly investigating the incident to determine what could have led to the fire.
