WFR was dispatched out to an early morning lighting strike at 1520 5th St. SE. Crews on scene found that lightning had stuck a chimney on a 2 story house. Minor damage was done to the chimney and some plaster on the main floor was knocked off the wall. Crews checked all floors for any other issues related to the strike. The owner was informed to have an electrician look at the wiring and have his appliances checked. Crews then returned to station.
