Lightning Strike Sparks 3-Alarm Fire at Danbury Condos

A three-alarm fire damaged nine condo units on Candelight Drive in Danbury after lightning struck the complex Thursday evening, according to fire officials at the scene.

Firefighters said two residents of the building at 51 Candlelight Drive saw lightning hit the building as storms rolled through.

Although the building's age made it difficult to fight the flames, no one was hurt and all pets were rescued.

The residents of three affected units are receiving temporary housing from the American Red Cross, according to the fire department.
