Lightning bolt strikes on Fourth of July
West Louisiana officials say lightning injured six people at an RV park near the Louisiana-Texas state line.
Sabine Parish Sheriff Ronny Richardson tells KTBS-TV that a lightning bolt struck during a Fourth of July celebration at an RV park at Toledo Bend Reservoir.
Parish Warden Joe Dewil tells KSLA-TV it's believed to have hit a tree just after 7 pm Saturday.
Richardson says all six people went treated at a local hospital.
Their names and conditions were not available.
Dewil says they are believed to have non-life threatening injuries, such as chest pain and headaches.
The RV park is part of the 114-acre Cypress Bend Park owned by the Sabine River Authority, which manages the 185,000-acre reservoir created by damming the Sabine River.
