Firefighters responded to a home on Sugar Maple Drive in the Spring House Estates just after 3 a.m. Tuesday.  Two people were inside the home that received heavy damage to the second floor. The two residents told emergency crews that lightning hit the house during an early morning storm. Both got out safely. 

Crews were called also to a home on Ballard School Road about 3 a.m. at the height of strong storms.  A fire there was put out very quickly.  Responders also believe lightning may be to blame.
