Lightning Strikes blamed for house fire.

Written by Eddie Lewis

Late Tuesday Afternoon Emergency personnel were dispatched to a call in the Carolina community on South Hwy 29. The initial reports were a Gas Line had been struck by lightning and was burning. As personnel began arriving it was reported that the House was fully involved with fire. Carolina Fire Department quickly began to fight the fire even as the rain and lightning around the area continued. The Fire engulfed the entire home and as it was burning small arms ammunition began going off due to the fire. A small explosion occurred as well but No injuries were reported. The Fire seems to have started when a Bolt of lightning struck the ground close to the home between a Large Tree and some smaller ones. The Ground that the lightning traveled was up routed and left several trenches across the front yard that were deep and dirt piled around them, these trenches went directly to the house where the gas meter was at and that seems to be where the fire started. The Home belongs to the Prestwoods and was fully destroyed. It was reported at the scene that the elderly resident was at home but vacated to a safe location awaiting the fire Department. Carolina Volunteer Fire Department, Hopewell Volunteer Fire Department, Wing Volunteer Fire Department, Advance EMS, Covington County Sheriffs Deputies, Southeast Alabama Gas District and Power South responded to the scene. No injuries reported to any personnel or residents.

Today's meeting was very informative and I thank all that came including Rick Barber.Attendance was enogh to expand our core group as was our goal. Mr Barber is as real as they get and with him in Congress we will be properly represented. I Implore all that read this to go to vote Tuesday at the run off and give this patriot your support.

This one is driving the left crazy.  Expanding on “Gather your armies,” Rick sheds some light on how taking from one to give to another is a form of slavery and how we should never forget what has happened to other countries that weren’t able to keep their governments in check.

Rick Barber is a small business owner and a conservative Republican running for Congress in Alabama's 2nd Congressional District.
