House fire in Niles, 7-18-19

Excerpts from the Journal-Topics.com:

Niles firefighters suspect a lightning strike as the cause of a fire in a home in the 8300 block of Ballard Road Thursday morning (July 18). Residents in the home heard a loud bang, followed by lights flickering. The lightning strike ignited the fire in a small void space between the home’s vaulted ceilings and the roof itself. Firefighters used pike poles to pull down sections of ceiling to expose and extinguish the flames. 

All residents evacuated safely, there were no injuries, and the fire was extinguished within about 20 minutes.

I finally got a chance to see this new memorial at the fire academy, a scuba dog in memory of Juan Bucio, a CFD diver who lost his life while performing a water rescue. This is really well done with a lot of detail
