Lightning blamed for fires in area




Lightning strikes caused small fires at two Center Grove area homes early Monday.

A home in Kensington and and one in Hickory Stick were struck by lightning. In both cases, residents inside heard the strike, got out of the home and were not injured.

Each fire caused less than $5,000 in damage, and residents were able to return to their homes after firefighters left, Bargersville Fire Chief Jason Ramey said.
