Lightning Sparks Fire

Lightning is being blamed for a shed fire in Washington Monday afternoon.

Firefighters responded to the small blaze behind a home off Mill Hole road.

Crews tell us they think lightning hit the flagpole anchored to the shed, traveled down the wires and started a fire in the small barn.

Firefighters quickly put the blaze out. No one was injured.
