Lightning Strikes House, Starts Fire

Fire trucks crowded a cul-de-sac in Greenville to fight a house fire early Thursday morning. The rain stopped for crews to fight the fire, though lightning still flashed across the sky at times. Officials believe lightning started the fire at 1695 Cumberland, which is off 14th St. in Greenville.

People in the Scarborough subdivision were out and about to watch the crews fight the fire. A neighbor said a huge boom woke her up around 1 a.m., and she found her own phone cord was smoking. Not too long after that, fire trucks arrived.

No one lives at the house currently. It's on the market to be rented.
