From NBC12 News
Lightning is to blame for house fire in Henrico. It happened Sunday evening in the 2900 block of Irisdale Road.
The family thought they heard a shot-gun blast. Then, smelled smoke.
Duane Stone, whose home caught on fire, says his neighbor saw exactly what happened. Stone says, "Neighbor says he saw a lighting bolt come straight across and hit the chimney. Walk around the back and the roof was ablaze."
Six people were in the home at the time, including four children -- one as young as seven-months-old.
Everyone got out safely.
No injuries were reported.
