FLORESVILLE -- Officials say a bolt of lightning is what caused a man to lose his home on Eagle Ridge Drive off U.S. 181 north of here Aug. 21.

According to Assistant Fire Chief Walter Cursinger of the Eagle Creek Volunteer Emergency Services, fire crews were dispatched to the one-story brick home at 6:21 p.m. Upon arrival, Cutsinger said the house already was fully engulfed, prompting him to summon the assistance of three other fire departments.

Harl Van Der Heck said he was in the home when the lightning struck. He and two dogs escaped unharmed.
