Lightning Strike Sparks Apartment Fire

WILMINGTON-- Fire officials say a lightning strike sparked a blaze in the attic above an apartment at Hunter's Trail Wednesday.

Crews tore through the roof to put out the fire. Two cats were rescued from the apartment below.

Neighbors say they knew immediately it was a lightning strike but had no idea the complex was on fire.

There was minor smoke and water damage to the apartments, and no one was injured.
