Episode Narrative Scattered showers and thunderstorms with heavy downpours and frequent lightning occurred during the morning hours on the 13th along a frontal boundary.
Event Narrative Lightning struck a four story, 20,000 square foot house on Breeding Drive north of Hartselle. A mother and child were in the home at the time and escaped without injury, as the fire erupted and quickly spread throughout the house. Tragically, this house was burned to the ground. In addition, the blaze destroyed two antique cars.
