Photo Gallery | Photos from Sunday fire

From John Robinson with the National Weather Service:

The Batesville fire department has determined that this fire on the north side of Batesville was caused by lightning.  The fire occurred at a business that supplies cylinders of industrial gases to other businesses.  None of the cylinders was involved in the fire.

The photos show the outside of the business; note the wall bulged outward and discolored by heat.  Electrical and phone equipment on the outside of the building was fried.  A utility pole had scorch marks all down the side.
