TOMAH, Wis. (8/11/09)--Oakdale CU’s lobby was damaged after a lightning strike and fire in the early morning hours of Aug. 3. The credit union, located in Tomah, Wis., is still operating. The Oakdale Fire Department responded to a fire at the credit union around 3:18 a.m. on Aug. 3 and saw signs of a lightning strike (The Tomah Journal Aug. 6). The $40-million-asset credit union is functioning through the back portion of its building in its community room. The system and phones are operating, Oakdale Operations Manager Jesse Braman told the newspaper. Estimated fire damage is at 30%. The credit union’s building will be remodeled and the lobby should re-open in one to two months, Braman said. Oakdale’s drive-through was temporarily closed and was expected to be open by now.
