A lightning strike caused a small fire in the upper room of a Weber County home during the storms that hit northern Utah on Saturday.
Weber Fire District Capt. Tom Sexton said firefighters were called to a home in the Uintah Highland area south of Ogden at about 6:45 p.m. after lightning struck the wooden turret on the roof of a Victorian-style house.
The strike caused a small fire that spread into an upper room of the house, which firefighters were able to extinguish from the inside. In all, the fire caused between $15,000 and $20,000 in damage, Sexton said.
