Rough River Appliance, on Johnson Street, burst into flames just before 2:00pm Friday. The Leitchfield Fire Department had the flames under control within 20 minutes of arriving on-scene but did not clear the scene until 3:30pm.
The Kentucky State Fire Marshal has been called to the scene of the blaze to determine the cause of the fire. This is standard law in Kentucky when a commercial or retail store is involved in a fire.
The apartment complex that is located adjacent to Rough River Appliance suffered minor damage to the outside of the building as the vinyl began to melt due to the heat.
A portion of Salt River Road was closed down during the blaze.
