Good thing it didn't cause a wildfire. Yikes!

Lightening strikes have been causing fires all over Northern California and Nevada.  I wonder if they figured out what(for sure) caused this one. 

 

From the story 

Quote:
 

Witnesses reported seeing lightning hit the area shortly before the fire.

However, the resort's general manager, Chris Beckett, said while there was lightning in the area, "it's undetermined at this time whether lightning caused the fire."

"We [will] have some lift manufacturer personnel on the ground early this week along with our insurance representatives to try and determine what caused this fire," he said.
