A LIGHTNING strike caused a small fire in a roof.

Three fire engines and an aerial ladder platform went to Station Road, Park Gate, near Fareham, at about 2am today.

The lightning dislodged some of the roof tiles and a small fire filled the roof space with smoke.

The fire was quickly contained by firefighters from Hightown, assisted by a crew from Fareham.
