Fire burning at business in W. Kentucky

REIDLAND, Ky. (AP) -- Firefighters were battling a blaze that broke out Thursday at a business in far western Kentucky.

The Paducah Sun reports that the fire started at More Power Diesel in Reidland around 2 p.m. CDT.

The fire was spreading to nearby businesses but there were no reports of injuries Thursday afternoon.

The newspaper reports that Paducah's water company boosted pressure to help douse the flames as eastbound traffic along nearby U.S. 62 was being diverted.
