Lightning may have caused fire that destroyed a home in Orange County

Lightning may have caused fire that destroyed a home in Orange County

Orange County fire investigators say it's possible that lightning may be to blame for a fire that destroyed a home.

Flames broke out around 3:45 p.m. off Brittney Lane near the Old McCormack sand pit.

Firefighters got it under control around 5 p.m., but not before the roof of the home had collapsed.

The homeowner was not home at the time, but tells KFDM/6 News on Fox that he's "sick to this stomach" at the total loss of his home.

Fire investigators say they aren't certain, at this point, what caused the fire and are still investigating.

No one was injured.

KFDM/6 News on Fox's Peter Eliopoulos has the report.
