WHITE BEAR LAKE, Minn. (WCCO) – Lightning is likely to blame for a house fire early Sunday morning in White Bear Lake.

Fire crews responded to the fire at about 4:45 a.m. When they arrived, they learned that lightning from the storms that hit the metro overnight hit the house and likely started the fire. It was contained to the attic.

Authorities said everyone inside the house was able to get out safely and nobody was hurt in the blaze.
