ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A central Florida house fire was reportedly started by a lightning strike.
Orange County firefighters responded to the fire Saturday. Officials say it was well involved when firefighters arrived, but they were able to contain it.
Occupants at the home told officials they heard a loud crack and the sound of a circuit breaker popping. Neighbors later saw smoke coming from the house and called 911. The three people inside the home were able to get out safely.
Orange County Fire Rescue has classified the fire as an accident.
