Lightning causes Santa Rosa County house fires overnight

Firefighters in Santa Rosa County got an early wake-up call Saturday when lightning strikes led to house fires.

Crews were called just before 1:30 a.m. to a residence in the 5640 block of Churchill Downs Court in Pace.

The Santa Rosa County Public Information Officer said that a deputy was able to safely escort four people out of the single-story Pace home.

There were no reported injuries.

When Channel 3 arrived on the scene, there was lots of smoke but no flames.

Crews also had to tackle another house fire Saturday morning on Mcarthur Road in Jay.

Channel 3 was told no one was inside that home.
