Lightning sparks fire in attic of Payson home

A fierce thunderstorm apparently sparked a garage fire near the airport Thursday afternoon. Lightning struck a detached garage in the 1600 block of West Dalton Circle just before noon, said Payson Fire Chief Marty deMasi. Next-door neighbors Danny and Wendy Helton said they were enjoying the storm in their pajamas when they heard a large crash and saw a flash of light.
