The storm that rocked Lawrenceburg on Monday did a fair amount of damage, including setting a home on Walker Lane ablaze.
The fire, which apparently damaged the home’s roofline, was caused by a direct lightning strike, a police officer at the scene said. He said that a City of Lawrenceburg employee saw the home get struck, and called the fire department.
The fire rekindled Tuesday afternoon, drawing a second response from firefighters.
The storm also blew over a tree on East Broadway, blocking the street next to Col. Bob Thompson’s home.
