Lightning Blamed for Sunday Fire in Mountain Grove

MOUNTAIN GROVE, Mo. — The Mountain Grove Fire Department says lightning is to blame for a fire on Sunday.

The department was dispatched to the location of Dawson Archery on Highway 95 Sunday night. Firefighters arrived to find the building fully engulfed, with the high winds from the southeast feeding the flames. They were unable to save the building, but did keep a nearby home from burning.

The owner, who lived in the home near the store, says the shop had been closed for some time due to his retirement, and because of that not many items were inside the store.

No injuries were reported.
