One thought on “Watertown Home Catches Fire, Possibly Caused by Lightning

  1. That’s a scary story. The odds of any individual house being struck by lightning are tiny, but lightning-caused surges are likely to become increasingly common as the weather gets weirder.

    An explanation from our Watertown Fire Department of how this fire may have started and some advice on how to protect against a surge-caused-fire would be very welcome.
