Be careful out there, the wild weather continues in areas surrounding Los Angeles. Lightning strikes in Orange County have caused at least three tree fires and Fullerton community college to close after a strike hit campus, knocking out power. Out in Fontana, a man was injured by lightning that apparently struck a crane he was touching. He survived, according to the Press-Enterprise.
