Bossier city fire investigators think lightning may have been the cause of a Saturday night fire that heavily damaged a home in the 2600 block of Village Lane.  

Firefighters were called to the home about 9:30 last night and found heavy smoke coming from the home’s soffit and attic vents.  After they entered the house, they found fire in the attic and it was spreading rapidly.  It took them almost an hour to bring the fire under control.

The man and woman who were in the home at the time were able to get out safely.  They’ve told investigators they heard a loud thunder clap and then their power went off.  A short time later, they noticed smoke and got out.

At one point during the fire attack, three firefighters were on a lower level roof when part of it gave way.  That caused one firefighter to partially fall through.  He was able to hang onto the roof while flames licked at his body.  His two companions were able to pull him back to safety.  The firefighter was not injured because his bunker gear kept the flames from reaching his body.

The upper portion of the house was heavily damaged by the fire while the rest of the house received heavy water damage.  The exact cause of the fire is still under investigation.
