Firefighters on Friday morning, Sept. 13 responded to the scene of a fire at an apartment building on Shephard Street in Waukesha. Officials believe the storm may be to blame. At approximately 11:30 p.m.,the City of Waukesha Police and Fire Dispatch Center started to receive calls of a reported Structure Fire on E. Main Street. Residents reported that lightning struck the building, or in the area of their building, and caused the fire alarms to activating. "It was a loud boom. It sounded like a bomb really. It even shook the apartment over here. After that, I'd say within five minutes, [I] heard sirens so I came outside and just saw smoke and everything. At first the flames weren't showing, then out of no where it erupted. It was crazy." said Neko Ebbott, lives nearby.
