Authorities: Lightning strike sparks house fire in Flint

FLINT, TX (KLTV) -

Fire crews have extinguished a house fire in Flint, that is believed to have started from a lightning strike.

Flint-Gresham and Bullard Fire Departments responded to the call in the 3,000 block of Yasmin Circle, late Tuesday morning.

Neighbors reported hearing a loud "cracking" sound, then looked out and saw the roof of the home on fire. That's when emergency officials were notified.

The owners of the home were not there at the time of the fire, but we're told they're on their way there now to assess the damages.

No injuries have been reported.
