FAIRFAX, Iowa — The Red Cross is helping family members at a home on Cedar View Drive with a place to stay after a fire damaged their attic on Sunday.

Firefighters responded around 5 p.m. for a report of a structure fire in the 5000 block of Cedar View Drive SW.

Investigators say lightning hit the satellite dish on the roof of the house, causing a fire that did significant damage to the attic.

First responders say no one was hurt, and authorities did not immediately have an estimate of the damage.
