      Lightning sparks fire at Grand Blanc Township collectibles store

      Jellybeans Collectibles store is heavily damaged after a fire Wednesday night.


      A Fenton Road collectibles store is badly damaged following a fire sparked by lightning.


      According to Grand Blanc Fire Chief Jim Harmes, the fire started when lightning hit the roof of the Jellybeans Collectibles store around 8:30 this evening.


      Chief Harmes said the building had already suffered a lot of damage by the time crews arrived on scene.



      "I'm not surprised at all that we got calls, we had a house fire, a possible house fire as we got dispatched to this one so we've had two calls here and we had quite a bit of lightning in the Grand Blanc area", said Harmes.




      Fire crews from Burton and Mundy Township were also called in to help extinguish the flames.
