Lightning Strike Blamed For House Fire In Memphis

The lightning storm on October 21 took its toll in Memphis. The Scotland County Fire Department was called to 320 N. Lincoln Street at 10:15 p.m. after the residence was apparently struck by lightning.

The lightning strike apparently started a fire in the front room of the home centering around the television set. The blaze spread through most of the front room. The fire department was able to quickly bring the fire under control, limiting fire damage to the front room. The remainder of the home sustained extensive smoke damage.

Three firemen entered the residence through the front door and quickly dowsed the flames. Through the use of the department's thermal imager device, they were able to limit water damage to that room.

The fire department was on the scene approximately one hour. The Scotland County Ambulance Service, Memphis Police Department and the Scotland County Sheriff's Department assisted at the scene.

The property is a rental home owned by Jerry Hyde. It was unoccupied at the time of the fire.
