(KYTX/TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH) - Lightning appears to have been the cause of a fire that destroyed a Smith County home Monday morning.

Multiple fire departments responded to the blaze around 9 a.m. at the house  located at 12931 Lisa Jenn Road (CR 1222), west of Tyler.

The homeowners were not at home at the time of the fire. Two dogs died in the blaze and another was put down after it was badly burned.

Homeowners built the house themselves ten years ago. They plan to rebuild.
