On Tuesday evening, Dec. 18, 2018 the US National Weather Service in Louisville, KY notified the Adair County 911 Center of a hot spot showing on their satellite imagery. The Knifley Fire Department responded to investigate and found a barn fire on Mt Tussle Road.
This new satellite has already proven itself "seeing" fires in Kentucky and could have saved Knifley from this isolated barn fire becoming a large wildland fire.
Thank You Ryan Sharp and the whole Louisville NWS for keeping eyes on Kentucky!
