Fire destroys 2 Estill businesses

Two Estill County businesses were destroyed in a fire Wednesday afternoon, county fire Lt. Jeff Oliver said.

No one was injured.

The Estill County Fire Department received a report about the fire about 1:10 p.m. Wednesday in the 5500 block of Richmond Road in Irvine, Oliver said.

Six agencies helped to fight to the blaze, which engulfed Straight Shot Pro Shop and JR Furniture, which are in the same building, Oliver said.

"The building was fully engulfed and the roof was already starting to collapse," he said.

Oliver said a state arson investigator would help determine the cause of the fire.
