CAUGHT ON VIDEO: Lightning Strikes Kars4Kids Headquarters

VIDEO: What started out as an ordinary work morning at the oorah kars4kids Lakewood office quickly took an electrifying turn when lightning struck the building.

“There was a loud blast and all the lights went out,” said one employee.

Surveillance video from within the Industrial Park building shows the lightning touching down.

Nobody was injured, but an interior wall and part of a ceiling were damaged.

The fire department arrived within minutes and power was restored shortly as well. [TLS]
