BEECH GROVE, Ind. (WISH) — A Beech Grove couple heard a lightning strike Thursday morning and realized shortly after that their house was on fire.

Firefighters went to the home in the 900 block of Rotherham Circle. Fire officials said they’re fairly certain lightning is what caused the fire.

The couple was able to get out of the home without any issues. There was minor damage to the back of the house, but no one was injured. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
