Posted: Updated:
Lightning may be to blame in an East Ridge house fire.

Fire crews were called to 1305 Sunnyfield Lane just before 5am Monday morning.

According to East Ridge Police Chief Mike Williams it appears the fire started in the attic of the home. The resident of the home made it out safely.

Williams says the fire caused an estimated $50,000 in damage and may have been caused by lighting.

“We aren't ruling that out because the fire started in the middle of a lightning storm,” Williams told Channel 3.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
