CARROLL COUNTY, N.H. -

They say lightning never strikes the same place twice, but if you were in Carroll County, N.H., Wednesday night, you'd disagree.

That lightning is being blamed for starting a number of fires at houses and barns.

The meteorologists say that is an unusually high number of lightning strikes.
