OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

Owensboro Fire Department responded to a large house fire on Friday night.

According to officials, lightning might have been the reason for a house fire in the 800 block of Triplett Street around 8:00 Friday night.

Owensboro fire officials tell 14 News there were two people home at the time of the fire and they got out of the house by the time fire crews arrived.

Officials say the fire started in a bathroom on the first floor, spread to the second floor, and then to the attic.

The fire chief says the cause of the fire is not known at this time and it's still under investigation.

He says there were candles burning in the home because of the power outage, but he doesn't know if that's what caused the fire.
