Constable deputies are responding to the 100blk of W Valera Ridge PL regardng a lightening strike that has caught a residential roof on fire.
The homeowner told ABC13 that he felt like lightning had hit his home around 5:15 a.m. He checked the second floor of the home and the attic but didn't see anything.
However, when he went back downstairs, the doorbell continued to go off and he knew something was wrong.
He went back to the attic and saw smoke. That's when he woke up his wife and got her, their two dogs and himself out of the home safely.
Firefighters went into the attic but quickly had to leave, going into defensive mode to extinguish the fire.
Storms moving in Monday morning brought a lot of lightning strikes, particularly on the north side.
