Lightning Sparked Fire

Cincinnati Firefighters say lightning sparked a fire last night that forced the evacuation of a home for the blind.

16 people living at the Bell Home in Green Township are displaced Wednesday morning because of water damage.

Fire fighters say a sprinkler in the attic saved the building and possibly lives.

Everybody got out of the building fine and the Red Cross is assisting most of the blind residents. There's no word yet on how long the residents will be out of their homes.
