Storms spark house fire, cause damage in San Tan Valley


A monsoon storm passed through the East Valley last night bringing lightning, high winds, and heavy rain.

A lightning strike ignited a house fire in San Tan Valley causing severe damage to the home. The house was fully engulfed when Rural Metro firefighters arrived. They tried attacking the fire from inside the home, but the roof began to cave in and they pulled out. It took several crews over six hours to extinguish the fire. The homeowners were not home at the time of the fire.

Poston Butte High School suffered damage to the outdoor grounds of its campus. Part of a roof was blown off a bus barn and a fence fell over on the baseball field. Many downed trees were also reported in San Tan Valley. The chances for storms in the coming days are low, but the storms that are on the radar will be strong and may include high winds, and hail.
