A round of thunderstorms rolled through parts of our area Monday afternoon. Fire officials say lightning from one of those storms sparked a fire at a home in Perinton.
The Egypt Fire Chief tells News10NBC the homeowner saw the lightning strike the house on Matthew Drive, saw sparks, then called 911.
Officials say everybody got out quickly.
Fire Chief Tim Young says his crews had been at a previous call when this one came in, so they were able to respond quickly.
News10NBC is told one firefighter was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
