Wenona’s Fire Chief is recovering after being hit by lightning.

When responding to a semi blown over on Interstate 39 last evening, chief Danny Sullivan had an electrical current go through his handheld radio.  He was taken to St. Francis Medical Center immediately for tests.

Sullivan was due to be released from the hospital today.
