Lightning Causes Fire
KEARNEY, Neb., Sept. 2.— Three building at Miller were struck by lightning and were burned to the ground. One building was occupied by a barber shop, one by Mrs. J. W. Day with millinery, and the other was an empty store owned by Frank Besack. The loss was covered partly by insurance. Had it not been for the heavy rain storm the fire would have been more serious.
