A lightning strike set a three-story bed and breakfast in midtown Raleigh ablaze early Monday morning.
A fire was reported on the roof of Cameron Park Inn at 211 Groveland Ave. at 1:43 a.m., said Garry Spain, division chief of Raleigh Fire Department.
The fire, sparked by lightning, burned the attic of the inn.
"It was a lot of fire," Spain said. Two guests were found safe outside the inn.
Firefighters had the fire under control at 3:16 a.m., Spain said.
The fire department dispatched seven fire engines, two ladder trucks, and two rescue trucks.
No injuries were reported.
