Lightning fire destroys barn at Three Chimneys

HUMANS and horses had a lucky escape on Sunday evening when a lightning strike caused a barn fire at Robert Clay’s Three Chimneys Farm in Kentucky.

The Spinster broodmare barn was struck by lightning and destroyed by the blaze it caused.

But a statement from Three Chimneys said that two horses were in the barn and both were rescued.

The strong storm that hit central Kentucky is reported to have caused minor damage including fallen trees and power blackouts.
