No injuries have been reported from a fire that occurred Thursday night at 2712 College Street.
Newberry Fire Chief Keith Minick said crews responded to the address at approximately 5:20 p.m. for a report of smoke coming from the roof of the building. Upon arrival, crews found the outside rear door on fire that had extended into the building and contained the fire to the area of the building. Crews worked through heavy rain to accomplish this task.
“The structure had to be ventilated due to the smoke condition,” Minick said.
Minick said it appeared that lightning struck a nearby tree and ran into the structure.
