Lightning struck the roof of a home on Pine Road on Thursday evening, causing a fire that firefighters quickly extinguished, said Doug Saba, Evergreen Fire/Rescue spokesperson.
The blaze started about 5:30 p.m. during a severe thunderstorm that swept through Evergreen and surrounding areas.
Saba said it was fortunate that the residents were at home and immediately called the fire department. Otherwise, the blaze could have spread and caused more extensive damage to the home, he said.
