Lightning Destroys Hay and Vehicles

KSAL StaffAugust 14, 2018

Lightning is blamed for igniting several hay bales and three vehicles yesterday as thunderstorms fired up Monday afternoon around Saline County.

Sheriff Roger Soldan tells KSAL News that 18 bales of hay were burned on John Thelander’s property located in the 4000 block of E. Cloud.

There were no injuries.

Deputies say the row of bales were struck by lightning just before 3pm. Loss is listed at $900.

Deputies were also called to A & A Towing located at 1332 N. Ohio on Monday at 4:08pm after a suspected lightning strike hit a car on the fenced lot.

The fire spread to two nearby vehicles and destroyed a 2001 Chevy Tahoe, a 1994 Chevy Blazer and a 2001 Mazda Millenia.

Loss and storage fees is estimated at $4,800.

There were no injuries.
