BRANSON, Mo. – Firefighters believe lightning started a blaze this (Wednesday) morning at a large two-story garage next to a home off Cedar Park Road east of Branson.

Western Taney County Assistant Fire Chief Jim Single says crews arrived to find heavy smoke and flames showing from the second floor of the building. He says neighbors reported hearing a loud crack of thunder before seeing the fire…

 

 

Single says crews worked for nearly two hours to fully extinguish the blaze. The homeowners were away at the time.

Firefighters from College of the Ozarks provided mutual aid at the scene. No injuries are reported.
