Lightning Strike Triggers Fire/Destroys Naples Home

NAPLES (WGME) -- Nicole and Gabriel Martin and their two young children are staying with family after lightning strikes trees next to their home, sparking a fast-moving fire.

Officials say the fire moved quickly, engulfing the roof first giving Nicole and her children a precious few minutes to escape. Gabriel was not home at the time. Everyone is ok, and the family says they do have insurance. Fire fighters tried to salvage as much of the family's belongings as possible before fully dousing the house to extinguish any remaining hot spots.
