Lightning strike sends firefighters into actionOctober 22, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — Units of the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department responded Monday morning to the report of a turkey barn struck by lightning.
The 8:53 a.m. call sent trucks to the Burger Farms property at 329 S. Old Huntingburg Road.
Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang said firefighters arrived to find that the turkey buildings on site were fine. Instead, he said, lightning had hit some discarded wiring that was in a pile of loose straw, causing the straw to smoke.
A garden hose at the scene was used to wet down the straw.
Four trucks and 24 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
