Yesterday afternoon, 6 units from The Tallahassee Fire Department responded to house fire in the 8000 Block of Evening Star Lane. Firefighters received the call as a smoke alarm activation and while responding were able to get information from a neighbor that
there was smoke coming from the home. The fire was in an upstairs game room and started when lightning struck a nearby tree and traveled to a portable AC unit.
No injuries were reported during the incident. Damage is estimated at $200,000.
