Thunderstorms moved through Barrow County Thursday night causing numerous trees and power lines to fall.
This created a very busy night for public safety officials in Barrow.
“Once the storm moved into Barrow calls started immediately into Barrow County Emergency Services 911 Center,” commented Deputy Chief John Skinner. “The majority of the calls were storm related.”
One house was struck by lightning at 468 Lisa Circle. Barrow Ladder 7, Engine 5, Med 5 and Med 4 responded and found fire on the outside of the home near the roof line. Firefighters quickly knocked the fire down and checked the house to see the amount of damage.
