LOGANVILLE, Ga. — Walton County firefighters responded to a fire that might have been caused by lightning late Wednesday.

It happened on McCullers Road off Georgia 20, south of Loganville.

The National Weather Service said numerous to widespread thunderstorms are forecast Thursday afternoon and evening across north and middle Georgia. Some could be strong to severe.

In Walton County, highs will be the mid-80s with an 80% chance of rain.
