Reston, VA

Fire investigators say that a fire at North Point Village Center last week was caused by a lightning strike.

The June 11 fire was contained to the former location of The Boston Market, which has been vacant since July.

No injuries were reported and no occupants were present during the incident. Fire and rescue crews responded to the scene after a delivery person noticed the flames from the roof at around 3 a.m. that day.

The incident resulted in nearly $75,000 in damages, according to the  Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department.

A fire also occurred on the roofline of the same building in August 2019.
