Lightning Strikes Shed
NEW BLOOMFIELD - Wednesday morning around 3 a.m., fire officials believe lightning struck an old shed belonging to the Christian radio station KNLG, causing a fire, said John Rhoe, office manager of New Live Evangelistic Center. NLEC owns the radio station in New Bloomfield. Rhoe said when the sheriff arrived at 4 a.m., the shed was "pretty well burnt." Inside the 15 by 10 foot shed were old building supplies. The shed is located 300 yards from the radio station itself, which sits on Missouri Renewable Energy land. Rhoe said the radio station suffered no damages.
