Lightning Strike Starts Fire

Posted: Updated:

We saw a number of lightning strikes Wednesday morning, due to a heavy storm; but it was an especially scary morning for one Millcreek family, when lightning actually hit their home.
3 people, living at a home on Fieldstone Court in Millcreek Township, called the Fire Department just before 8:00 a.m., Wednesday morning.

A jolt of lightning hit the side of the house, making a hole and starting a small fire in the basement.

Crews from several fire departments responded.

Personal electronics inside the home got zapped, but luckily no one was hurt.
