Waltham homeowner escapes fire during storm


Fire crews were called to a home in Waltham late Thursday night. The fire was reported just before midnight at 204 Columbus Avenue.

The owner, 46-year-old Toby Johnson, was home at the time. He says some how he woke up and saw smoke.

When firefighters arrived on scene, Johnson was safe outside.

Lightning was in the area at the time of the fire and power was out in the neighborhood.

Johnson's father says there is no insurance on the property. 

So far there is no estimate on the damage.

Hayfield Fire responded and was assisted on the scene by the Brownsdale Fire Department.
