Carlisle County Officials: Pre-dawn Fire Gutted County Courthouse

Carlisle County officials say a pre-dawn fire gutted the county's courthouse.

Firefighters in the Western Kentucky town of Bardwell are still fighting the fire that's burning at the Carlisle County Courthouse.

It started sometime before 5:30 a.m. on Dec. 26.

Officials are also dealing with water runoff from the firefighting efforts.
