Townhome fire that followed lightning took an hour to control

The fire that swept through a group of townhomes in Moorestown, overnight, is finally out.

It broke out in the 400 block of Windrow Clusters Drive and took crews about an hour to get it under control.

FOX 29's Steve Keeley reported lightning blasted down on Moorestown. Then, soon after, people in the development smelled smoke and saw fire from a possible lightning strike.

Several homes were damaged and flames were showing through the roof of at least one home.

Firefighters from six towns were on scene and many had to use a mist fan to cool off after getting out of the hot smoky home.

Nobody was hurt, but Keeley noticed weather conditions presented more of a danger to firefighters than the actual fire.

The cause of the fire is officially under investigation.
