House Catches Fire After Being Hit By Lightning

A house that was struck by lightning yesterday afternoon was severely damaged by the ensuing fire.

A storm moved through northern Onslow County around 4:30 p.m. Neighbors say the home on Legato Lane outside of Richlands was hit by lightning.

The house is currently empty, but a family was supposed to move back in next month.

There is no word yet on the dollar loss from the fire.
