Fire Blamed On Lightning

Lightning is being blamed for a fire at Gilmer Country Club last week. That's the official word from investigators.

The clubhouse was destroyed in the blaze on July 30th. A storm had blown through the area the night before, so authorities suspected lightning could be the cause. Now investigators with the Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms division have confirmed that.

The building was valued at around $350,000 dollars. The club does have insurance.
