2 Face Arson Charges in Rail Shop Building Fire

Two Kentucky youths are expected to be charged in connection with a fire that destroyed a former Southern Railway shop building in Ludlow, Kentucky.

The two are facing arson charges stemming from that fire and a fire that destroyed a vacation house in the city’s business district.

Ludlow Police Chief Scott Smith said the two youths have admitted to starting the fires.

The railroad shop building fire was reported about 6:30 p.m. on June 10. Firefighters from five departments were called to the scene.

The building is owned by Norfolk Southern but was not in use. It was constructed in 1949 and was one of the last Southern-built structures still standing in Ludlow.
