WARREN COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) – The Warren County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after an infant was abandoned outside of a fire station.

Reportedly deputies were called just before 6:45a.m. on Saturday for an infant that was located at the Gott Fire Station on Porter Pike.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, a passerby noticed the baby sitting inside of a box and left unattended, so they called authorities.
