One lightning bolt struck a home south of during Monday's afternoon storm. No one was injured and there was no fire, but the lighting caused some damage to the home's chimney.
Fire Marshal Scott Mullins told Fox 2: “The only thing that actually happened was that it cracked the chimney and threw some bricks off.”
Mullins said the rain was good, but it was not going to solve the problem with all the heat and all recent drought. He said fire warnings will remain in effect.
Editor's Note: My family and I were driving at the outset of the storm and saw this bright, humongous lightning bolt. We said outloud: "Hope that didn't strike a dry field."
