Beam is only about 80 proof which usually won't burn. I guess the alcohol somehow separated and floated to the top and burned when the lightening struck it?

"Despite being the victims of a lightning strike, Jim Beam are facing damages of $70,000 for polluting the nearby creek which led to major fish kills."

Seriously??? They will because they can.
