An Oak Hill home caught fire early Thursday morning and lightning could be to blame.

Officials say the fire erupted at a home in the 4000 block of Sewanee Road around 1 a.m., suffering smoke and water damage.

The woman who lives there reported she woke up to use the restroom, smelled smoke, then went outside and saw flames coming from her roof.

She was not injured.

Crews believe the fire began with a lightning strike.  A tree near the house appears to have been struck.

The exact cause, however, is still under investigation.

It is being classified as a two-alarm fire due to the size of the home and flames, but it is not considered a total loss.

Further details were not immediately released.
