APISON, TN (WRCB) -

Lightning is believed to be the cause of a fire that forced a family of six from their home Tuesday night.

When the Tri-Community Volunteer firefighters arrived on the scene, they say smoke was pouring out of the home.

It happened on Alabama Road in the Apison Area, just before 8:00pm.

Fire officials say they were able to contain the blaze within 30 minutes. Damages are about $75,000 dollars.

No one was hurt. The Red Cross is helping the family.
