Between 10:54 p.m. and 12:11 a.m., Frisco firefighters were called to three different house fires on Mesa Verde Drive, Triple Bar Road and Cain River Drive.

The fires broke out as a line of severe thunderstorms pushed across North Texas overnight, bringing frequent lightning and wind gusts of 75 mph or more.

Fire officials said no one was hurt in any of the fires.

Damage estimates for the homes have not yet been provided.
