Lightning strike sets fire to Farmington home
A Farmington man got a rude awakening Wednesday morning after lighting struck and set his house on fire.
Terry Nutter had worked a night shift and was asleep around 10 a.m. in his home on the 500 block of Lower Heritage Way. A loud clap of thunder woke him briefly, but he fell back to sleep.
His dog, however, was wide awake and roused Nutter from his slumber. He was still a little groggy, he said, until he noticed his bedroom window was on fire.
