Other Information:  The fire started on the shop attached to the home. The carport was in-between the shop and the home all attached. Upon our arrival found fire coming from the attic above the shop. The fire crews pulled down ceiling in order to get to the fire and made a quick stop before it made it into the home. Two cars under the carport were undamaged also. This home can not be seen from the street. A neighbor who lives on Joor Rd. behind this home Cody Overstreet recent graduate from Central Private made the 911 call.   Not being able to see this from the street if the call  from Cody had not been made this home could have been a total loss before a neighbor on Conestoga would have see it. There was lightening in the area at the time. Electrical equipment for the pool pump on the wall of the shop was the ignition point of the fire.
