Henrico Fire crews responded to a fire believed to be sparked by lighting just after 4:00 PM Wednesday afternoon. The blaze broke out in the 900 block of Jamerson Lane in the Twin Hickory neighborhood.

First responders noticed smoke coming from the back of the home and found the flames to be under the house’s siding. The fire was quickly extinguished once the source was determined. A line of strong thunderstorms with frequent lightning, strong winds, and hail were reported in the area around the time of the incident.

No one was at home at the time of the blaze and there were no injuries reported.

Crews posted a live video to Facebook towards the end of the call with the caption, “personnel beginning to repack after a working fire in the 900 block of Jamerson Lane in the county’s West End. The fire is suspected to be the result of a lightning strike.”
