Fire at Florence nursing home believed to have caused by lightning

FLORENCE, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities in far northeast Wisconsin say lightning might have caused a fire at a nursing home.

It happened Sunday afternoon at the Golden Living Center in Florence.

No one was hurt. Florence County sheriff's officials said all 41 residents escaped safely, and were taken to an elementary school -- where they were taken home by some of their families.

The fire is believed to have started in the building's attic. Almost a-third of the nursing home had structural damage inside.
