MCKINNEY (CBSDFW.COM) – Investigators believe lightning is likely to blame for a fire that heavily damaged a new home in McKinney early Sunday.

Officials said the home had just been finished and was not yet occupied.
No one was hurt.
Firefighters also battled possible lightning-strike fires in Fort Worth and Frisco overnight.
On Clairmont Drive in Burleson, heavy flames were seen coming from the roof of a house there. Fort Worth firefighters assisted in fighting the flames.
Investigators will determine the exact cause for each fire along with a damage amount.
