Lightning Ignites House Fire in West Lubbock County

Monday's weather caused a Lubbock County family to lose their home.

A bolt of lightning ignited a two story home near Reese Center shortly before 11 p.m. Monday night. Volunteer firefighters from Carlisle and Shallowater helped put out the blaze.

A man and two children inside the home escaped without injury, but they lost virtually everything. If you would like to make a contribution to the Edwards family, you can do so at any branch of American State Bank.
