Fire at Senator Rand Paul’s Local Office

It has been claimed that Senator Rand Paul’s office building in Bowling Green, Kentucky, caught fire sometime during the night.

According to the Bowling Green Fire Department, nobody was hurt in the blaze.

According to reports, several downtown Bowling Green commercial establishments were damaged or destroyed in the fire

“Several large tree limbs in front of Sen. Rand Paul’s office had to be cut so a hose could reach the 2nd floor windows. Six units worked to extinguish the flames, with firefighters manning the aerials of trucks 1 and 6 to get at the fire from above,” Texas Lindsay tweeted.

Bowling Green Daily News provided further information:

An early morning fire tore through a commercial building on State Street Friday, leading to a roof collapse and heavy damage in the structure, which is home to Sen. Rand Paul’s Bowling Green local office.

According to Katie McKee, public information officer for the Bowling Green Fire Department, no injuries were reported.

McKee said emergency personnel responded to the blaze around 1:45 a.m., noticed the heavy fire and called for additional units.

“And we have just been working on this structure fire ever since,” she said Friday morning.

McKee said the structure no longer has a roof, confirming that it had collapsed.

Friday’s sunrise had to compete with the plume of gray smoke spewing out the top of the structure, home to Paul’s office, the law office of Kerrick Bachert, and Dezign Tees.

Sen. Paul reportedly provided this statement when asked for comment:

“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.”

The Bowling Green Fire Department is still investigating where the fire started inside the building.

Sen. Rand Paul earlier this week referred Anthony Fauci to the Department of Justice for prosecution for lying to Congress under oath.
