MILLERSVILLE, Mo. (AP) - Who says lightning doesn't strike twice?

People who live along Highway B in the southeast Missouri town of Millersville told KFVS-TV (http://bit.ly/NNs9SF ) that lightning struck a farm field in two places Thursday night, starting two fires. Neighbors worked together to put out the fires and keep them from spreading to nearby homes.

No one was hurt and damage was minor. The lightning occurred as strong storms rolled through parts of Missouri.
