VIDEO: Wednesday night lightning struck a gas line sparking a fire according to the Linn County Sheriff's Office. It happened in Rich Frahm's front yard which is in the 7400 block of Macon Drive. "I was in the basement working on some electronics and I had my hands on a light that I was putting up and I could feel it in my hands when it hit. I heard it of course, and I felt it in my hands," he told us. Frahm didn't realize the lightning had sparked a fire until his neighbor rang his doorbell.
