Lightning sets field on fire in Seligman
Hwy. 37 backed up near state line; Hwy. 62 backed up into Garfield, Ark.
Those planning to travel to Arkansas today may want to reconsider their route, or their trip entirely, as severe weather started a fire that has backed up traffic on Hwy. 62 heading to the state line.
Mick Epperly, Barry County sheriff, said lightning caused a field south of Seligman to catch fire. No one was injured.
According to Cassville resident Steve Reid, the slow traffic extends into Arkansas heading from Gateway, Ark., to Garfield, Ark., where a big rig was involved in a wreck.
Reid said the wreck is on the east side of Garfield, and it took him one hour to go less than four miles.
