A lightning strike causes a garage to catch fire early Monday morning.

Firefighters responded to Carlyle Drive at 1:35 a.m. after a smoke detector went off at a home following a large boom.

There was no fire at that home, but firefighters noticed a fire at a house a block over at 395 Carlyle Drive.

The people who live there were able to get out safely and the fire was contained to the garage. Fire crews had the fire under control within 10 minutes.

There are no reports of any injuries, and the people who live there were allowed to re-enter their home.
