Two firefighters were apparently injured in a blaze at an historic Northern Kentucky grocery store on Tuesday night.
A Kentucky State Police dispatcher said five fire departments responded to Allen's Country Store in Corinth around 8:30 p.m. The store is located on Dixie Highway.
WKYT-TV, the CBS affiliate in Lexington, reports that one firefighter was treated for a back injury at a local hospital and released. Another was taken to a hospital in nearby Scott County to be treated for smoke inhalation.
Firefighters say the store owner went back to turn on the security system when they noticed the fire. Several apartment buildings sit above the store. One was occupied and a woman and another person staying there were able to escape the fire.
Firefighters say the building is more than 100 years old. The store is a total loss. Fire marshal will be at the scene Wednesday afternoon to try and determine a cause.
Corinth, Crittenden, Jonesville, Dry Ridge and Willamstown Fire Departments all helped put out the fire.
