Lightning strike in Churchill

A CHURCHILL property was struck by lightning on Thursday evening, resulting in a blown electrical circuit and damage to the inside of the house.

Country Fire Authority incident controller Blake Coss said the CFA received the call at 6.16pm to the house in Switchback Road.

“There was no fire, just the insulation was smouldering,” Mr Coss said.

“A family was at home during the time but nobody was injured.”

Three CFA units from Yinnar, Morwell and Churchill attended the incident.
