Luling family loses everything after lightning strike sparks fire

LULING, LA (WVUE) -

A Luling resident captures the flames that engulfed a home on Bernice Drive after a Sunday lightning strike. 

The family of six- including four children ages 5, 6, 8 and 15 -  wasn’t home at the time, but they lost four pets in the fire. While residents waited for the fire department to arrive, some grabbed hoses, trying to put out the flames. 

A GoFundMe site has been set up here to take donations: http://www.gofundme.com/zsncb5w

Tonight, despite losing all their material belongings, they tell FOX 8 they’re grateful. Meg Gatto explains why on FOX 8 News at 10.
