Yesterday a small storm rumbled through our area around 1830 hours causing some lightning strikes.
Station 77 and Engine 51( Limerick Fire Department) were dispatched to a building investigation on Shelton Drive in Upper Providence Township for a house struck by lightning.
Crews from Ladder 77, Engine 77, Tower 51, and Engine 51 checked the residence and found no smoke or fire. Crews did find an electrical shortage inside.
It was later determined a tree in front of the residence was struck by lightning causing underground electrical issues into the residence.
