Fire destroyed a vacant building in the small town of Mt. Eden on the Shelby County - Spencer County line Thursday morning.
Officials say the fire broke out in a building along KY-636 around 5:20 a.m. When firefighters arrived, the two-story abandoned grocery store was fully engulfed. Flames threatened two neighboring buildings, but firefighters managed to contain the fire to the old grocery. Crews from at least four fire departments battled the blaze for more than an hour before bringing it under control.
There were no reported injuries.
The investigation into the cause of the fire continues.
