CHARLOTTE, N.C. —

Investigators determined lighting sparked a fire Sunday morning at a home displacing a south Charlotte family.

Firefighters responded to a house on Greengate Lane close to 8 a.m., the same time that thunder and lightning moved through that area.

More than two dozen firefighters worked to put out the fire.

The Charlotte Fire Department said the fire caused $20,000 in damages.
