Lightning may be to blame for a Papillion house fire Wednesday morning.

Flames were shooting through the roof with thick smoke as firefighters arrived near 132nd and Mercury, just south of Highway 370, around 1:30 a.m.

Residents said they heard a loud bang and the house shook.

Damage to the roof and upper level was estimated at about $100,000. Nobody was hurt.
