Red Cross assists after lightning sparks fire at Savannah home


The Red Cross is assisting a family after lightning apparently sparked an attic fire. 

Fire officials say four adults were displaced after a lighting strike is believed to have hit a home on Sunnybrook Road and caused a fire in the attic around 9:30 p.m. Monday. 

The fire did minor damage, but according to the Red Cross, the family had to leave the home because utilities had to be cut off. Thankfully, no injuries were reported.

According to the Red Cross Public Affairs Lead, this is the 7th family displaced because of fire in 7 days in the area.

The Red Cross encourages the general public to help the Red Cross assist this family and others by making a generous financial donation to your local Red Cross. To help people affected by house fires and other disasters such as this one, call the Red Cross office in Savannah at 912.651.5300, or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
