Lightning a factor in house fire


Lafayette firefighters responded to the 100 block of Bradbury Crossing on Tuesday to a reported house fire.

The caller indicated that the house was possibly struck by lightning. When firefighters arrived, smoke was coming from the peak of the roof. Firefighters made entry to the dwelling and quickly accessed the attic area.

A small fire was found and extinguished quickly. The home sustained water damage to the attic and second floor. No injuries were reported.

Fire officials determined that lightning was a factor in the cause of the fire.
