Flames also destroy an abandoned home in Posey County last night. This happened on Copper Line Rd. near Ford Rd. around 9 p.m.

Neighbors tell us they believe the weather played a role in sparking the blaze. They say just before the fire started, they saw a bolt of lightning in the area. Shortly after, they went outside and saw the home on fire.

This morning, just the chimney remains standing. So far, no official word on the cause.
