Kentucky led to alcohol-contaminated water entering rivers and streams, APA reports citing BBC.

About 45,000 barrels of bourbon burned in the blaze at the Jim Beam warehouse, where firefighters from four counties were enlisted to help contain it.

But over the weekend, officials said runoff from firefighting efforts had led to an alcohol plume in one river.

Wildlife officials say it is causing low levels of oxygen in the water.
