   BELMONT, N.H. (AP) — A lightning strike at a New Hampshire Boy Scouts camp has injured nearly two dozen scouts.

   Scouts spokesman Greg Osborn says no one was directly hit by the lightning Monday at the Griswold Scout Reservation. He says some of the 23 scouts and three adults who were injured complained of tingling and burning sensations and all were treated by camp nurses before being hospitalized as a precaution. He says those who were treated are doing well and are in good spirits.

   The lightning struck during a big evening storm just outside Belmont at Camp Bell, one of two camps at the reservation. The camp offers activities including rock climbing and sailing.

   Firefighters say the lightning struck near where the Boy Scouts had gathered. Osborn says the Scouts were under shelter at the time.
