MAYFIELD, Ky. — Indiana Task Force 1 is sharing some of the progress the team is making in cleanup efforts following tornadoes that traveled through six states.

The task force has been dispatched to Mayfield, Kentucky — the site of a candle factory destroyed over the weekend by the powerful twisters. At least eight people inside the factory were killed.

Indiana Task Force 1 has been working to help clear the rubble from the Mayfield Consumer Products candle factory.

He says the INTF-1 Rescue Team is working with INTF-1 Heavy Riggers, Rescue Team managers and crane operators to remove heavy debris.

The task force’s next assignment is in Dawson Springs, Kentucky.
