05/08/09 81 W, 1 I - + 17 - 13 Overnight Fires

WRAL is reporting that lightning caused at least two working fires overnight, at 6405 Sylvan Lane in Raleigh, and at the Wendell Country Club. Below is a picture of the 60 golf carts destroyed in the structure. There's something you don't see every day. A third overnight fire at an abandoned house on Thelma Street in Raleigh might have been started by lightning, they report. Or might have been started by homeless people. Read the story.

I’ve heard the story told of a cart barn at North Ridge Country Club, I believe it was, that burned maybe two decades ago. As the story goes, burning carts started rolling out of the barn, and had to be chased down, as the fire caused the motors to engage.
