Published:

Lightning is being cited as the cause of a fire that damaged a Clearwater home early this morning.

Clearwater firefighters say the damage at 1450 Citrus St. was limited to just the front of the house.

The homeowner told firefighters the intensity of the strike caused metal objects such as the doorbell and address plate to fly off the house.

No injuries were reported, officials say.
