Menomonee Falls — Three firefighters were injured fighting a house fire that may have been caused by a lightning strike Monday, June 30. The fire was reported shortly after 1:30 a.m. as a round of severe thunderstorms passed through Menomonee Falls.
While no one was at the Hummingbird Way home, firefighters were able to contain the fire and rescue two cats, according to a news release.
Firefighters sustained minor injuries upon fighting what was first believed to be a chimney fire as smoke and flames were coming from the roof upon their arrival, according to the release. They have since been treated and released.
With the assistance from Brookfield, Butler, Elm Grove, Germantown, Lannon, Milwaukee, Richfield and Sussex, the fire was contained by about 4 a.m.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation; however, neighbors reported hearing a loud crack before observing the smoke.
