Officials Believe Lightning Caused Danbury Condo Fire

DANBURY — Danbury officials say it appears a lightning strike caused a fire at a condominium complex. Fire officials say no one was injured in the fire on Thursday afternoon, when strong thunderstorms moved through the state. Authorities said the American Red Cross was helping residents of three damaged condos with temporary housing needs. Some residents told fire officials that they saw lightning hit the building, and others said they heard a loud noise right before the fire began in an attic just after 4 p.m. Fire officials are trying to determine exactly how the blaze began.
