Lightning strike sparks blaze

GOULD, OK (KSWO)-A lightning strike is believed to be responsible for this inferno in Harmon County.

An abandoned house on the corner of Miller Ave. and Slate St. burst into flames around 7:00 p.m. Thursday after it was struck by lightning. The blaze erupted while fueled by 40 mile hour wind gusts. Emergency officials said the fire was not threatening other structures so firefighters decided to let the fire burn itself out.
