A firefighter suffered minor injuries early Thursday in a west suburban St. Charles house fire.

At 1:46 a.m., crews responded to a house fire in the 900 block of Fox Chase Court, according to a statement from the St. Charles Fire Department. The blaze was extinguished at 2:29 a.m.

One firefighter suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene, fire officials said.

The residents of the home were woken up by a thunderstorm, at which point one of them discovered a fire on the second floor and attic, authorities said. None of the residents were injured.

The damages to the home were estimated at $150,000, leaving it uninhabitable, fire officials said. It was determined that a lightning strike from the thunderstorm caused the fire.
