More than twelve fire departments responded to a fire Tuesday night in Sidell, IL.
State fire investigators say it was a bolt of lightning that lead to the blaze that destroyed the town hall.
The fire began around 8:30 pm when lightning struck an antenna and traveled into the garage and village offices.
As fate would have it, the city was already planning on building a new city hall.
Construction for the new building began last month. Hopefully if all goes well they’ll be in the new location by July.
