Fire Off Old Porter Pike in Bowling Green


BOWLING GREEN, Ky (WBKO) A late night fire destroyed most of a Bowling Green strip mall Sunday.

Fire officials say they got a call around 10:30 Sunday night about a fire just off of Old Porter Pike near Louisville Road.

Along with battling the flames, firefighters had to deal with sleet and freezing temperatures.

One fire truck even got stuck, because of the road conditions.

The fire burned about 80% of the strip mall, but it's unclear how many businesses are affected.

Luckily, no one was injured.

Fire officials say they do not know the cause of the fire and because of the weather, it could take investigators longer than usual to find out what happened.
