Lightning strike a two-family Rockland home on Liberty Street around 4 p.m. Wednesday causing an attic fire.
An afternoon thunder storm hit the town hard, causing power outages and multiple fires. Due to several storm related calls, Fire Chief Scott Duffey said their resources were strained and they needed the assistance of Hingham and Randolph engines.
The fire spread to a second floor bedroom, no one was injured, but there was water and smoke damage.
Chief Duffey said they received a total of four calls dealing with separate lightning incidents–only two were working fires, the others were false alarms.
