Officials say lightning struck the home.
A fire during a thunderstorm on Monday night displaced a family.
The United Steam Engine Fire Company responded to the 59-hundred block of Jug Bridge Hill Road shortly after 10:00 PM, after lightning struck the home and caused an outside gas line to rupture and ignite a fire in the attic.
Dave Chisholm, Assistant Fire Chief for Uniteds, said it took 50 fire fighters 3 1/2 hours to bring the flames under control.
"No injuries reported to the occupants or fire department personnel," he says. "There is one pet that died in the incident."
Chisholm says damage is estimated at $150,000.
