Rand Paul’s Kentucky office damaged in a downtown Bowling Green fire

An early morning fire at a downtown Bowling Green building has damaged the office of Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, officials with Paul’s office said Friday.

The fire started early Friday morning at a building on State Street, according to the Bowling Green Fire Department’s Facebook page. The building contained a law office, Paul’s Bowling Green office and a retail store, according to the Bowling Green Daily News, which first reported the fire.

The roof of the structure has collapsed, the Bowling Green newspaper reported. No injuries were reported.

Paul said they are working with authorities to determine the cause of the fire.

“We are thankful for the Bowling Green first responders who arrived quickly to the scene to put out the fire, and are continuing to work with authorities to assess damages and to determine a cause,” Paul said. “We have a very well established emergency management plan and have the ability to continue operations that will not impact our work helping Kentuckians.”

The Bowling Green office is the only Kentucky office listed on the senator’s website.

Bowing Green Fire Department Public Information Officer Katie McKee told WBKO News it could take months to determine the cause of the fire.
