DUNEDIN — Lightning sparked a fire Monday at a condominium complex, leaving some residents displaced and two firefighters with minor injuries.
According to Dunedin Fire Chief Jeffrey Parks, the fire at the Country Lakes condo complex, 330 Promenade Drive, started about 12:45 p.m. in the attic when a lightning strike either hit a tree and jumped to the roof or hit the roof directly.
It is unclear how many apartments in the three-story complex were affected, Parks said. About two dozen people were waiting outside as firefighters battled the blaze.
Two firefighters were taken to area hospitals with injuries that Parks said were minor.
