I doubt the lightning had anything to do with it.... It takes (at the least) a period of days, a week or so, for flies to find a dead animal, lay their eggs on it, have the maggots consume the dead animal and crawl away to pupate for a few more days. And that would be only if the weather was HOT.
The flies, actually, are the end result of that dead animal, so by the time you see the flies, it's probably too late to do anything about it. The flies will end in a few days, on their own. And if the animal was small, you might not smell any odor.
So, all in all, I wouldn't worry about it. It all shoul;d end in a few days.
