Lightning may be to blame for a fire inside a home in Keller Wednesday morning, firefighters say.
The fire was reported at about 5 a.m. in the 1600 block of Crestwood Trail, just as strong thunderstorms were rolling through the region.
At one point Keller firefighters were forced to escape the burning 2-story home because there were fears the roof could collapse. The mayday call was answered by firefighters from Southlake, Colleyville, Grapevine, Fort Worth, Haltom City, Hurst, Bedford, Westlake and others.
The latest news from around North Texas.
No injuries have been reported.
A fire official said firefighters will determine an official cause of the fire once investigators examine the damage.
In North Richland Hills, a vacant home in the 6700 block of Mike Drive ignited Wednesday morning after a lightning strike, a fire official confirmed. No one was hurt.
NBC 5's Tim Ciesco and Ben Russell contributed to this report.
