CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – Four Campbellsville firefighters were injured Thursday when a fire truck’s aerial ladder came too close to a main power line at Campbellsville University, WHAS reports.


Michael Carter, Campbellsville University president, said the firefighters were at one of the campus athletic fields spraying the marching band with water for an ALS "ice bucket challenge" when the accident happened.


"[It] appears energy arced over and ladder didn't actually hit lines. If you get within certain radius that can happen," officials said during a news conference Thursday afternoon.
