Tecumseh Fire say lightning is to blame in a blaze at a field house behind the Ciociaro club.

Officials believe a lightning strike around 8am may have sparked existing electrical problems in the facility, as the flames didn’t start until well after the initial strike.

Damage is pegged at $20,000.

The slow-pitch league using the fields surrounding the house are cancelled tonight.
