A 'suspected lightning strike' caused a house fire in Bourne End last night (Saturday).
Two crews from High Wycombe, and one each from Beaconsfield and Maidenhead, and a fire officer, attended the house in Marlow Road at about 8.35pm.
The fire had affected the roof space of a two-storey, semi-detached barn conversion following the suspected strike to a weather vane on top of the building.
Firefighters used two hose reels, two sets of breathing apparatus, a turntable ladder and a 13.5-metre ladder to tackle the fire.
Crews carried out a reinspection at 3am this morning (Sunday).
Bucks Fire and Rescue confirmed that there were no injuries.
