Lightning from Saturday evening's storms caused a house in northwest Houston to catch fire, officials said.

According to the Northwest Fire Department, the fire started around 11:45 p.m. at the intersection of Greenhill Forest and Moonlight Forest drives. 

Although there was no initial damage, fire officials said something in the attic smoldered for hours before it caught fire.

Firefighters quickly got the small fire under control.

 

No one was injured in the fire.
