Toledo fire investigators have estimated damage to a West Toledo bar struck by lightning Wednesday at $30,000.
Arnie's Toledo, 3332 W. Central Ave., was hit during a thunderstorm shortly before 1 p.m. Wednesday and caught fire, forcing patrons to evacuate, fire Lt. Matthew Hertzfeld said.
Fire was confined to the roof area, but the single-story structure filled with smoke, Lieutenant Hertzfeld said.
