Lightning Started Brush Fire in Brookfield: Fire Officials

Lightning started a brush fire in Brookfield when storms moved through Monday, according to the Brookfield Volunteer Fire Company.

A Facebook post from the fire departments says they were called to Ina’s Road around 4:30 p.m. Monday and found a substantial fire in the rear yard from a lightning strike.

Fire officials said lightning struck a tree, then travelled down to a large pile of dead trees and brush from a macroburst last year. 

Firefighters extinguished the fire and said there was another lightning strike at the same time on Windwood Road.
