Storm knocks out fire unit computers

Two computers used to take emergency fire and rescue calls were knocked out of commission at the Oldsmar fire station Tuesday by what officials say was an apparent lightning strike during a storm between 3 and 4 p.m.

Lt. Jerry Gabardi said there was no other damage and the station at 111 State St. W in downtown Oldsmar was able to continue getting calls from the county fire dispatcher by radio. Gabardi said the computers will have to be repaired.
