Old Building Burns In Menifee County

Posted: Updated:

MENIFEE COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) -  An old building in Menifee County burned to the ground Saturday afternoon. Several fire departments and the Division of Forestry responded.

Fire fighters say the flames broke out around 1:30PM on Old Campus Road. Initially it was believed to be an old hospital, now we're told it was a school.

"Been burning wood here all winter to keep warm and today I started a little fire to heat up some water to make instant coffee,” said Donnie Mynhier, who lives in the building.

That's when Donnie Mynhier says he noticed embers started to burn the ceiling

“Could see flames in the attic, I run upstairs and there was already 7 or 8 Joyce's burning. Knew I could put it out so I run,” Mynhier said.

He says by time he got out there was already a Sheriff’s Deputy on scene.

"I didn't worry about calling cause I knew he could radio for more,” Mynhier said.

Mynhier says he knows the man who owns the building.

 "He let me stay there. Try to keep people from breaking in and tearing stuff up,” Mynhier said.

At this time no injuries have been reported. Fire officials say it will be up to the owner whether to pursue an investigation
