The Associated Press

MOULTONBOROUGH, N.H. — Recent lightning strikes from New Hampshire storms caused a two-boat fire that left the remains of the vessels at the bottom of Lake Winnipesaukee.

Firefighters said lightning struck one of the boats early Thursday in Moultonborough at the docks at the Quayside Yacht Club. The second boat caught on fire. One boat was a 22-foot sailboat and the other was a 28-foot runabout.

No one was aboard the boats at the time.
