Mother escapes house fire with child and two pets
Lightning likely to blame
Franklin, TN – A mother, child and two pets escaped a house fire unharmed this afternoon as severe weather moved through the area.
While still under investigation, Franklin Fire Marshal Andy King said the fire in the two-story, 2,800 square foot Fieldstone Farms home on Windcrest Ct. appears to have been caused by a lightning strike.
King said Franklin Fire Ladder 4 was at another less serious call at a house around the corner, when the Windcrest Ct. homeowner flagged firefighters down and told them her house was on fire. Upon arrival to her residence at 12:23 p.m., they could see smoke coming from the attic.
King said several additional units were dispatched. He estimated damage at $60,000 to the $433,000 home.
