Jim Beam seeps into river after blaze, killing fish

The Kentucky River is looking and smelling a little different after Tuesday's fire at the Jim Beam warehouse.

Thousands of fish are not swimming, but floating down the river.

Officials say alcohol that entered into a nearby creek and then the Kentucky River caused bacteria to multiply, taking the oxygen out of the water and suffocating the fish.

A plume of that contamination has gone more than 40km downstream.
