Lightning Strike Blamed For Business Fire In Peru

Posted by wlpo on October 22, 2012

Lightning is blamed for starting a short-lived fire at a Peru business.

A 911 call came in around 9:45 this morning about a fire in the maintenance building at CF Industries on the southwest end of Peru.  The crews responding were told to use caution because of power lines being down.  The fire was put out in about 20 minutes.

An electrician was at the business and quickly turned off power.
