Authorities say lightning is believed to have started a barn fire south of Lincoln.

Lancaster County Sheriff deputies responded around 7:30 p.m. with Hallam and Cortland fire crews to the barn, located just east of Hwy. 77 and Pella Rd., on reports of a structure fire.

Deputy Jordan Funk told Channel 8 Eyewitness News the crews arrived to find the building abandoned, unoccupied and completely engulfed.

“Nothing indicated that anything was suspicious or anything was going on it was more than likely caused by the storm,” Funk said.

There were no reports of any injuries to people or animals.
