TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Lightning from the monsoon storms on Wednesday, July 12, may have contributed to a fire at a mobile home in the 2700 block of West Los Reales, according to the Drexel Heights Fire District. 

Smoke was coming from smoldering wires under the floor of the mobile home. A lightning strike nearby could have led to the burned wires, the DHFD said. 

The family has been displaced because of smoke and damage from tearing up the floor to get to the wires. They declined assistance from the Red Cross, stating they would be staying with family who lived next door.
