LIGHTNING DAMAGED TWO HOMES ON SIOUX CITY’S NORTHSIDE EARLY TUESDAY, STARTING ONE OF THE HOMES ON FIRE.

CAPTAIN RYAN COLLINS OF SIOUX CITY FIRE RESCUE SAYS THE DEPARTMENT RECEIVED A 9-1-1 CALL AT 2:12AM WHEN A STRONG THUNDERSTORM BLEW THROUGH THE AREA:

OC…….THING TO DO. :15

FIREFIGHTERS DID NOT FIND ANY SIGN OF FIRE, BUT WHEN THEY LEFT THAT HOUSE, A NEIGHBOR ASKED FIREFIGHTERS TO ALSO CHECK THEIR HOME:

OC……….THEY SEE SMOKE. ;19

A FIRE HAD NOW STARTED IN THE ATTIC OF THE FIRST HOME, SO FIREFIGHTERS BACK WENT INSIDE:

OC…….THE LIGHTNING STRIKE. ;16

THAT HOME HAS BEEN RED TAGGED BECAUSE OF THE FAILURE OF THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM.

NOBODY WAS INJURED IN THE INCIDENTS.
