Lexington Firefighters directed water onto the Central District tobacco warehouse on South Broadway after it caught fire in September 1983. The fire sent smoke drifting over downtown Lexington. The building was being razed to make way for an underpass at the Souther Railway tracks. Photo by Ron Garrison | Staff
