The East Hampton and Amagansett fire department are responding to a large house fire in Water Mill on Tuesday afternoon.
The East Hampton fire departments are just two of several departments that have been called to Woodthrush Lane in Water Mill over the past two hours.
The house on Woodthrush was reportedly struck by lightning, during the thunderstorm at about 2 p.m., though that could not be confirmed immediately. The fire seemed to be under control, and then flames were reported through the roof at about 3:30 p.m.
The North Sea Fire Department, whose jurisdiction the blaze is in, immediately called for help from the Sag Harbor and Southampton fire departments.
