Fire crews said no one was inside the home during the time of the fire.

Officials believe lightning may have played a role in the cause of the fire.

"When we arrived on scene there was a pretty significant lightning show going on up in the sky. It was raining real hard. We were actually working two major fires at that time," said Deputy Chief Mike Wilson.

The fire caused mainly caused damage to the front of the home. Firefighters said fire walls protected other areas of the house.

This is a developing story.
