A lightning strike may have sparked a fire that caused roughly $75,000 damage Monday night to a house in Naperville.
Firefighters said they were called around 9:45 p.m. and arrived to find a fire in the attic of the house on the 3600 block of Schillinger Court. The fire was brought under control within minutes, they said, and largely was confined to the attic.
