Lightning strikes Savannah Children's Theater with kids inside

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A group of children are thanking their lucky stars after a storm Thursday.

The power's back on at Savannah Childrens Theater on Victory Dr after a lightning strike. Several children were inside the theater when it happened.

"They had a summer camp going on inside the facility. They were very proactive, gathered up all the children and got them out of the building for us." said William Handy, Battalion Chief.

Handy says no one was hurt.

The theater is still shut down for now, but can reopen once an electrician checks out the building and makes sure it's safe.
