Lightning May Have Sparked Barn Fire

Lightning may be to blame for a massive barn fire Friday evening in Clark County.
Fire crews were called to a farm on Basin springs road just after 5pm. A huge barn full of hay burned to the ground. Firefighters told us the barn owner believes a lightning strike may have sparked the fire.
A storm passed through the area just minutes before the fire started.
Firefighters stayed on the scene for hours to make sure the flames didn’t spread to other buildings.
