Shelby public safety crews responded Thursday evening to the corner of Vernon Road and Park Drive on a report of a lightning strike causing a possible building fire.
Crews on the scene report that during an evening storm, it appears a tree branch fell, and on the way down, struck a utility line behind the building, causing sparks.
No building fire was found. No one was hurt.
The scene is reported clear.
