Lightning Caused Fire and Water Damage in a Home in Dublin, OH

Fire Restoration

Ohio summers mean thunderstorms and lightning are in the forecast. When severe weather strikes your property, our PuroClean experts are ready to serve you in any capacity. Whether your home or business suffers from water, fire, and mold damage, our team can assist in restoring your property to its pre-loss condition.

Recently, we responded to a call from a Dublin, Ohio, family whose home was struck by lightning. The lightning hit a gas line in the basement, which ruptured and ignited. Fortunately, the homeowners could call the fire department and leave home safely. It would have been a massive catastrophe if they hadn’t been home.

When our PuroClean team arrived at the scene, we assessed the situation and found that most of the significant damage was confined to the basement, where the gas line ruptured. There was smoke damage, however, in the rest of the home.

Water Everywhere

The first task was to extract water out of the basement quickly. The fire department turned off the home’s power, so there was no sump pump to remove the water. We initially thought the water in the basement was from the fire department, but after making little progress on extraction, the technicians discovered the main water line break.

Because this occurred late, the homeowners called 911 to report a water emergency. The fire department arrived promptly to turn the water main off. When it was safe, our team removed the water from the basement, avoiding further damage to the furnace, hot water tank, and the rest of the property.

Our well-trained PuroClean technicians did an incredible job completing the water and fire damage restorations. Thanks to our hard-working team, the family of four’s home was restored efficiently and on time.
