No injuries were reported early this morning after a lightning strike sparked a fire at a house in Brandon.

Firefighters responding to a call at 1720 Woodhaven Dr. before 8 a.m. found smoke and flames in a bedroom.

Crews were able to contain the fire, and the occupant — 20-year-old Michael Oggero — had escaped prior to the firefighters’ arrival.

Oggero told firefighters a smoke alarm, and his dog’s barks, alerted him to the fire.
