Marion, OH Lightning Strike, May 1899


Burns Out a Fire Alarm Circuit and Strikes a House

During the storm Sunday afternoon the lightning played a little havoc in this city. The home of Jesse Warwick of Medlam avenue was struck and one corner of the house abattered. The damage was not very great and can be repaired at a small cost. The fire alarm circuit, known as No. 1, was knocked out by the storm. It was patched up temporarily Sunday, and this morning Harry May and Charles Bueneko found the damaged place and made the necessary repairs.
