A Flower Mound family is temporarily displaced after an attic fire, believed to have been caused by a lightning strike, caused damage early Wednesday morning.

Firefighters responded to the fire in the 3200 block of Hawthorne Court just before 6 a.m. Wednesday, according to Brandon Barth, spokesman for the Flower Mound Fire Department. The firefighters were able to get in and extinguish the flames quickly, limiting the damage to the roof and upstairs. No one was injured.

Barth said all of the home’s damage is repairable, but the family will be displaced until the repairs are made.
