A huge fire has destroyed a General Electric storage facility in Louisville, Kentucky.
The blaze sent up a pillar of black smoke that could be seen across the city.
There are no known injuries, and the facility has been evacuated, according to a GE official.
About 200 fire-fighters were deployed to the facility, which is primarily used for storage and office space.
GE Spokesman Dominic McMullan said that it is not yet known what caused the fire.
Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said that the area has been evacuated.
The Louisville Courier-Journal is reporting that “leaf-sized” pieces of charred insulation and soot were raining on residents up to three miles away from the scene.
People living within a half mile of the fire have been told to remain inside, the paper reported.
