This morning box 8A was dispatched for a structure fire on E. Main St. in the borough of Sykesville. Chief 8 arrived and confirmed a working fire requesting the 2nd alarm. Company 6 responded Rescue, Engine and Tower to the scene and assisted with overhaul of the structure. It appeared that the residence was struck by lightning causing the fire. First in crews had a good knock and held the fire in the attic. Company 6 was out for an hour and a half.
