M.E.S. responds to a Structure fire at 502 E. Main Street Wednesday afternoon.  The fire was apparently caused by a lightning strike to a walnut tree across the street from the residence.  The owner was at home at the time and was not hurt.


Fire appears to have started in an electrical outlet behind the stove and traveled up the wall. A quick knockdown was attributed to several factors including the fact the station was fully manned.  Crews were just returning from storm spotting when the call was received.  FF Lane Pearman uses a laser heat sensor to check for fire extension.  School mow crews did find a fatality later the next day, a dead squirrel.
