A suspected lightning strike from a fast-moving thunderstorm is believed to be the cause of a fire at a bed and breakfast in the Amana Colonies. Two people were inside Rose's Place Bed and Breakfast in Middle Amana when the storm moved through around 12:30. They say they heard a loud crack, then saw smoke coming from the upstairs section of the building. Fire crews from as far away as Coralville responded. No-one was hurt. The building was constructed in 1870 as a church. The owner says there is significant damage to the upper floor. He says the building is insured.
