CULLMAN, Ala. (WIAT) – Fire badly damaged the Health Imaging Services Pet Center on Warnke Circle Friday.

An inspection Saturday morning has investigators “leaning toward lightning” as the cause of the fire.

Cullman Fire Marshall Chris Chaffin says it appears the fire started in a kitchen area of the building. Chaffin says the next step is to take a look at data to study the occurrences of lightning in the area during Friday’s thunderstorms.

There were four people inside at the time of the fire. All were able to get out safely.
