Firefighters say a home in Locke Township is a total loss after a morning fire on Thursday.
It happened at near Morrice and Hoxie roads around 11:15 a.m.
No one was home at the time.
Early investigations suggest that this was an electrical fire that started in the laundry room.
Firefighters tell our crew that the home was struck by lightning about a week ago, and that the house has had electrical problems since then.
