Lightning struck a Fayetteville home early Monday morning, causing a fire and forcing the family that lives in the home to find a new place to stay. The lightning hit the roof of a two-story house on West Summerchase Drive, causing a fire on the roof. There were no injuries but two people and their dog will have to stay with family. Firefighters responded just after 2 a.m. to put out the fire and turn off the electricity. "It was a very loud boom!" said Rosemary Haney. "Just all of a sudden and I was up like that. I thought the oven had blown up cause my husband was baking biscuits." "A car pulled up and said 'Hey! Your house is on fire!'"
