JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A house fire late Thursday afternoon in the Greenland area was believed to have been caused by a lightning strike, the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department said.
Crews responded about 4:45 p.m. to the home on Eddystone Trail, near the intersection of Greenland Road and Interstate 95, after neighbors saw flames and called 911.
Firefighters said they quickly put out a small fire burning in the attic.
There was a hole in the roof of the home, but a tarp was placed over it.
