STREETSBORO, OH (WOIO) -

A lightning strike sparked a barn fire in Streetsboro during Wednesday's severe weather.

It happened around 5 p.m. in the 300 block of SR 303 just west of the railroad tracks.

When crews arrived on scene, they found a large brick storage barn fully involved in a fire.

Witnesses report seeing a large bolt of lightning in the area of the barn, then saw the barn on fire.

A thorough investigation leads investigators to believe that a lightning strike started this blaze.

No word on injuries. The structure was a total loss.
