Lightning may have sparked a house fire in the Dolemite neighborhood of Birmingham.
The call came in just after 7 p.m. in the 1400 block of Edwards Street. Officials say an elderly couple was home at the time but they made it out of the house OK.
A neighbor says they heard a loud boom before the fire started. Fire crews continue their investiation into the cause of the fire.
