BULLITT COUNTY, KY (WAVE) – Many parents
in Bullitt County said their Halloween took a scary turn after they saw a crawl
on their television screen about Nichols Elementary.
Nichols is the closest Bullitt County
School to the site where a train that derailed caught fire. The school district
announced a "shelter in place" status as a precaution, but a while later the

Hamilton said while parents worried,
