Lightning Starts Fire In Derry Twp.
DERRY TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — Storms were chock full of lightning as they passed through the area.
There are a handful of reports of lightning strikes, including in Westmoreland County.
Lighting touched off a fire at a natural gas well along Route 982 in Derry Township.
The Post-Gazette tells KDKA-TV the lighting struck a holding tank next to the well – not the well itself.
The fire is out.
The DEP will inspect the area Thursday since the contents of the tank were released.
