A lightening strike may be the reason a Bossier City home went up in flames.
The fire started in the 2600 block of Village Lane around 9:30 p.m. last night, and it took firefighters about an hour to get it under control.
The couple inside the home say they heard a loud thunder clap, then their power went off. After that, they noticed smoke.
One firefighter partially fell through the roof and became trapped while battling the flames, but other firefighters were able to pull him to safety.
"He's fine, no injuries, but of course it was a check for all of us, you know,” says Shift C Asst. Fire Chief Buddy Caskey. “We don't like to see our firemen get in any kind of danger like that."
The firefighter and the homeowner are both okay.
