Lightning Damage at Conisborough.

Two houses situate in Park Road Conisborough, were struck by lightning yesterday afternoon, holes being made in the roof and in the first floor.

At the house of C. Moody, a child standing in front of the fire was buried by soot, and at the house of Stacey Moody the lightning caused a burn on a child’s arm. At the house, Don View, no damage was done, but there was a fall of soot.

Startled by the lightning, a horse ran away in Daylands Avenue. It narrowly missed some children and was eventually stopped by a bricklayer’s labourer.
