Lightning starts small fire on deck of Waterford home

Waterford — A homeowner extinguished a small fire that began when lightning from a pop-up storm struck outside 53 Twin Lakes Drive on Wednesday morning, Cohanzie fire Chief Todd Branche said.

Branche said the 5:15 a.m. blaze began underneath a deck attached to the home. Firefighters ensured the flames hadn’t spread and cleared the scene.

No injuries were reported.

Records show the split-level home belongs to Sally and Roger Ruggeri.
