A railcar at the Holcim Cement Plant outside Holly Hill was struck by lightning Wednesday evening, igniting the fuel within it.

Plant employees were able to extinguish the fire within half an hour. Emergency crews are still on the scene to ensure the tank does not reignite.

No one was injured in the incident.
