Lightning Strikes Wayne Ave Giant

As numerous storms moved through the area, the first of many calls would occur at 993 Wayne Avenue at the Giant. Crews were alerted for fire in the building in the storage area due to an electrical surge. Company 1 arrived to find the building not evacuated and normal conditions from the front and rear. Deputy Chief Reitz had the investigation group and found no fire in the storage area, but after extensive investigation, it was found that an HVAC relay burned. Crews cleared the scene after about one hour.
