Fire breaks out at Eddyville, Kentucky plant; put out by sprinklers

Firefighters are investigating an overnight fire at a plant in Eddyville, Kentucky.

Eddyville Assistant Fire Chief Tim Schenk says they were called to the Exel Plant off Highway 62 around 9:40 p.m. Wednesday night. The sprinklers had put out the fire by the time they arrived.

The fire did burn 4-5 pallets of Polyvinyl alcohol. The plant is shut down, meaning no workers were inside when the fire started.

An investigation is underway.
