A house fire Wednesday night in Soddy-Daisy from a lightning strike destroyed nearly half of a home on Hamby Road.
The Sequoyah Volunteer Fire Department reported that the entire roofline of the home was on fire when they arrived.
They then requested a mutual aid response for additional manpower and apparatus.
The homeowner was not home at the time, and no injuries were reported.
Damages were estimated to be about $60,000.
Here in Chattanooga, we reached 91, dipping to 88 with a 4 degree temperature drop.
Police spokeswoman Evie West tells Channel 3, the child was left in the van for about 20 minutes while the temperature was about 93 degrees outside.
