Lightning strikes from this morning's storms may have caused two different gas tank fires on Sunday.

One tank went up in flames at Bridgeport Tank Truck on the north side of Bridgeport. The owner of the business says one worker was there at the time and saw lightning hit the tank. No one was hurt in that fire, but damages are estimated at nearly $200,000.

The Krum fire department helped contain another fire also thought to be caused by a lightning strike.
