LEMPSTER, N.H. (AP) - Firefighters say a lightning strike has canceled the first day of school for some students in Lempster, N.H.
They say the lightning strike happened about 10 p.m. Wednesday and damaged the electrical system at the Goshen-Lempster Cooperative School.
WMUR-TV reports the fire department told school administrators it was not safe for students to return to the building until crews could assess damage.
Classes were canceled Thursday and Friday.
