Lightning sets east Lawton home on fire

Posted: Updated:

Lawton- A round of storms in Texoma led to a late Thursday night house fire in east Lawton.

A bolt of lightning hit a home's roof in the MacArthur Park neighborhood a little before 11 p.m. It set the roof and the attic on fire, with flames shooting 15 to 20 feet in the air. Firefighters raced to stop the flames near 46th and Northeast Dearborn. They were able to save the home.

We're told nobody was living there and there was a "for sale" sign in the yard.
