GE to bring hourly workers back to Appliance Park

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — General Electric plans to start bringing hourly workers back to Appliance Park next week following a massive fire.

GE officials told The Courier-Journal ( on Wednesday that all salaried employees were back to work and the company was running some limited production. The hourly workers will begin coming back in phases.

Meanwhile, lead fire investigator Maj. Henry Ott said it could take two months to complete the investigation into what caused Jefferson County’s largest-ever structure fire.

The blaze last week destroyed the warehouse section of the park’s Building 6, which is larger than 5 acres.

The Louisville fire department official said firefighters were still extinguishing hotspots on Wednesday.

Ott said there is no known cause of the fire and no theories have been eliminated.
