Two homes went up in flames overnight, including one in Smith County around four this morning on the 1100 block of Lavender Road.

Sheriff's dispatchers tell us they don't believe anyone inside at the time. Investigators say lightning started this fire.

Lightning was also to blame for a fire in Flint on Grand Slam Avenue around 3:00 am this morning. Officials say the fire started in the attic. The home was occupied at the time of the fire, but everyone made it out safely.
