Fire Engulfs Rand Paul’s Office

The Bowling Green office of Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) was engulfed in flames in a fire that started last night, officials have confirmed.

No injuries have been reported at this time.

The Bowling Green Fire Department arrived at the scene around 1:45 a.m.

Firefighters fought heavy smoke and fire when they hit the scene and had to call for backup.

Rand Paul said: “We are thankful for the Bowling Green first responders who arrived quickly to the scene to put out the fire and are continuing to work with authorities to assess damages and to determine a cause.

“We have a very well-established emergency management plan and have the ability to continue operations that will not impact our work helping Kentuckians.”

Several large tree limbs in front of Sen. Paul’s office had to be cut so a hose could reach the 2nd-floor windows.

Six units worked to extinguish the flames.

Firefighters were manning the aerials of trucks 1 and 6 to get at the fire from above, according to the Bowling Green Daily.
