SA Fire Department Douses Tree Hit By Lightning


Saturday's storm caused plenty of calls for Salmon Arm's Fire Department.

Fire Chief Brad Shirley has word on the most problematic one "Only one of consquence was the tree on fire out on Foothill Road - had been struck by lightning. Wasn't much of a threat but we made sure it was extinguished."

Shirley says it was too close for many.. "It's in a fairly populated residential area."

Crews spent about two hours on scene.
