Light shorts out, sets off depot fire alarm

Register Staff Report


A call on Monday by the Blue Grass Army Depot for mutual aid from the Madison County Fire Department was canceled a few minutes later.

The call, which went out about 10:30 a.m., was prompted by a light fixture that shorted out, according to BGAD Public Affairs Officer Mark Henry.

The short caused a flash of light but nothing was damaged, Henry said. The incident occurred at a shipping and receiving warehouse for chemical defense equipment.
