Two elderly women in Omaha are ok after a house fire Thursday morning. Omaha Fire Battalion Chief Frank Kleffner says they were called to home in the west-central part of the city around 8 am after lightning struck the roof.
Chief Kleffner says most of the fire was on the roof area. The home had wood shingles that caught fire and there is little damage to the home.
Neighbors spotted the fire and helped the two elderly residents safely from the home. There were no injuries.
