Lightning causes scare in rural Brainerd neighborhood

Email

Lightning possibly struck a home Monday night causing a gas leak that affected multiple homes giving residents in the Lone Oak Road and Stone Ridge Road neighborhoods south of Brainerd, just off St. Mathias Road, a scare.

It took five Brainerd Fire and Rescue crews — working in the dark — to search five to seven homes in the neighborhood to shut off all the gas lines and search for possible fires. Gas was leaking into the homes and two small fires were found.
