LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A barge carrying hazardous chemicals had to be checked by firefighters after a report it was taking on water.

Firefighters from Pleasure Ridge Park were called out around 9:00 a.m. Monday morning.

The barge was one of seven being towed by a tug boat.

It was docked by the Mill Creek LG&E plant.

Officials tell WAVE 3 the barge is not leaking, but will remain docked until it can be repaired.
