No injuries were reported in a house fire near the intersection of Radford and Jim Crow roads on Monday afternoon, according to authorities.
Firefighters responded to the 5500 block of Radford Road at around 4:20 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 3, to find heavy, black smoke pouring out of the attic of a 1,500-square-foot home, said Hall County Fire Services spokesman Zach Brackett.
Arriving units had the fire under control about 40 minutes later, Brackett said.
Fire officials said Tuesday that lightning was determined to have caused the blaze. The same storm damaged property and boats on Lake Lanier, Brackett said.
No one was inside the home at the time of the fire, Brackett said.
