LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Lexington’s Blue Grass Stockyards are on fire, and a reporter heard a series of explosions coming from the area.

Lexington Fire Department spokesman Joe Best says the blaze is one of the largest he has seen in his 25 years with the department.

Best says a call came in to the department about 2:20 p.m. Around that time, Associated Press reporter Adam Beam saw thick black smoke coming from the area and heard explosions.

Best says he does not yet know whether there have been any injuries to humans or animals.
