BARRE – This barn on Angevine Road is pictured during a severe thunderstorm on Monday night. I was out near this barn for reports of a house fire. On the way to Angevine Road from Albion, there were numerous flashes of lightning.

This is my first try at a lightning photo. The storm had weakened at this point. I learned from this outing and look forward to trying it again.

The fire was in the basement of the house at 4722 Angevine Rd. The homeowner used a fire extinguisher to take care of the fire. Barre firefighters, and other local departments, responded to the scene.
