Catskill steeple demolished after lightning strike
CATSKILL -- Crews worked to demolish a church steeple on Thursday after being struck by lightning Wednesday evening.
The strike sent debris flying down the block on main street where the former church stands. The building is now home to the Snap Fitness Center.
An assistant fire chief says 15 people were working out inside the building at the time of the strike, but no one was hurt. Residents of nearby buildings were evacuated until the steeple could be dismantled.
