LINCOLN, Neb. -- Lincoln Fire and Rescue crews are working determine what caused a house fire early Thursday morning.

Just after 3 a.m., Lincoln Fire & Rescue crews were called to a home on 63rd near Lexington Street.

Flames broke out in the attic of the home and fire crews quickly put out the flames after arriving. No one was hurt and Red Cross provided shelter for the homeowners.

Fire crews are still investigating the cause, but on scene, speculated it was possible that a lightning strike from an earlier storm smoldered until flaring up later.
