The Zionsville Fire Dept. had a busy morning Aug. 26, as a thunderstorm led to lightning strikes and traffic accidents.
At 8:11 a.m., ZFD received two commercial fire alarms from Greek’s Pizzeria on Main Street and the site that formerly housed The Sanctuary art gallery. Firefighters did not discover any fires at these locations.
About 10 minutes later they responded to a home at 120 N. Main Street that had been struck by lightning. The house suffered minor damage, and paramedics checked out a resident at the scene who refused transportation to a hospital.
Shortly before 9 a.m. ZFD responded to another report of a lightning strike at 6573 Bainbridge Circle, where they discovered a hole in the roof. A neighbor at 6577 Bainbridge also reported a lightning strike.
The busy morning also included a motor vehicle accident at Whitestown Parkway and Veterans Drive and a residential fire alarm at 5380 S 700 E, which did not result in a fire.
