Lightning Strikes House.

Residence of Mrs. Lizzie Shields Suffers From Storm.

Without a warning of any kind, last night about 9 o’clock, a bolt of lightning fell from the sky, during the severe rain storm, and wrecked a rear chimney on the residence of Mrs. Lizzie Shields on south 5th avenue. The family was in the house at the time, and all escaped without injury or damage to the house, other than hurling the bricks of the chimney connected with the furnace, to the ground in the rear yard almost to the roof line.
