Two homes in Lamar County struck by lightning


Tuesday evening brought thunderstorms to the area, as well as two separate fires caused by lightning. Just after 6pm, Lamar volunteer firefighters responded to a home on fire at 205 Burnt Bridge Road. A tree next to the home was struck and spread to the building. A short time later, a house just to the north, on 34 Den Stone Road in the Bent Creek Subdivision caught fire due to a lightening bolt which hit a tree and traveled down the electrical wiring into the garage. No one was hurt in either blaze.
