Lightening Sparks Fire at Petal Country Club

Posted: Updated:

Around 2 a.m. Monday Petal firemen were called to Twin Pines Country Club.

They found an equipment storage building fully engulfed in flames.

After about four hours of battling the blaze, the fire was out, but it was deemed a total loss.  Thousands of dollars worth of equipment were destroyed.

Assistant Fire Chief Shane Pickett said it appeared the fire started after it was struck by lightening during a bad storm that night.
