Lightning Strike Ignites House Fire on Dean Forest Road

Posted: Updated:

Southside Fire Officials say a bolt of lightning caused a blaze that caused severe damage to one part of a house on Dean Forest Road.

  Officials got the call around 5:00am Tuesday morning.

  Over 30 fire fighters from both Southside Fire and Garden City Fire responded to the blaze and had it knocked down within 20 minutes.

  The woman leasing the property tells News 3 she was planning on turning the home into a new daycare.

  Southside Assistant Fire Chief Hugh Futrell says the lightning probably came from the thunderstorms Monday afternoon and smoldered into the blaze.
