I'm glad to hear such nice comments about our volunteer firefighters. They really do a wonderful service for all our communities and sometimes they don't get the recognition they deserve but this time people are coming together for them. Hurrah!

We faced many challenges that morning, the biggest was the lack of knowledge of our Chief. Why was it not common knowledge to him and others that plan for disaster in the city that the contents of that building become very toxic when ignited.

Why did we have to wait for the Fire Marshall to arrive to be told this was a Hazardous incident, above more than an old building on fire?

"OUR" chief did a great job...once again. Every firefighter knew of the contents of that building, knew the risk of such contents when ignited, and IN NO WAY EVER, did "OUR" chief put any firefighter in harms way. Fighting a fire upwind, no interior attack, and SCBA when entering to knock down hotspots...Once again you jealous cowards flex your keyboard muscles while hiding behind anonymity...GROW UP!

I don't know who YOUR chief is but OUR chief is very knowledgable of all the buildings in Hardinsburg. He would also never endanger any firefigher. We were well aware of the toxins that the building could produce. Nearly every fire department in the county was on that scene and there were zero injuries. Job Well done!It saddens me to think that there are people who have nothing better to do than try and put someone else down. My apologies for replying to this garb, Jerianne

Yet another "accident" in Hardinsburg...guess they'll have no excuse now to make those high end high dollar products in China or Vietnam now and ditch the people slaving for minimum wage. Glad I got out of BC long ago. I do feel for the city and VFD folks though, been in the same position with freezing temps myself and don't miss that a bit.

Looks like another empty lot to paint murals on the walls and plant flowers and put a bench in downtown once the fire marshal writes this off.

I was an employee of the Studio for nearly 5 years and that place was the best place that I have ever worked. When I applied for the job I let them know right off the bat that I had a criminal record and they didn't care. I am now considered a dislocated worker, and I have decided to go to college, get my Associates Degree, and become a Registered Nurse. The ladies that worked there were my extended family. That place was my home away from home. I miss everybody there and wish them all the best of luck. I love you all.

Good thing you finally have a reason to get out of the rut of working slave production labor like some $3 a day Paki -but- you'll need to go further than an associates for an RN - medical tech is about the limit on an associates. Good start but don't stop with the 2 yr degree...keep on with it if you can get the funding to continue and get at least to an LPN. Hopefully you can climb out of the hole they call Breckinridge county and be better off with a new job and new start.

As far as not caring about your record - sure they didnt because you had the skills they needed and would work for their pay. You filled a seat on their line and they could continue to mass produce items that sit on the shelves of stores in NYC, LA, Chicago, Paris, etc with very pricey stickers on them. I can relate with co-workers being extended family - everywhere I worked and especially my time in the military the people I know and many I am still in contact with, even ones from well back into the 1970s I worked with in the military.
