LOGANVILLE, Ga. — Firefighters responded early Monday afternoon when a lightning strike caused a fire at a barn.

Shortly after noon, Walton County Fire Rescue and Loganville Fire Department were en route to a house on Center Hill Church Road, near McCullers Road, in unincorporated Loganville.

Assistant Chief Craig League of Walton County Fire Rescue said a neighbor called in the report. Upon arrival, firefighters realized it was a barn on fire and not the home.

League said Center Hill Church Road would be closed due to the firefighting efforts.

A tornado watch remains in effect until 4 p.m.
