A house that's been home to a Dowagiac family for almost 30 years is gone, destroyed by lightning.
Niles Daily Star reports that Troy and Barb Jones bought a house in the 400 block of East Division Street in Dowagiac, after an electrical fire burned down their previous home.
Lightning struck the roof just before 11:30 Wednesday morning.
The fire kept firefighters busy most of the day, detouring traffic between Dowagiac and Cassopolis.
The home is a total loss.
