Lightning sparked an apartment fire Saturday evening on the northwest side of Indianapolis. 

Firefighters were called to Woods of Eagle Creek Apartments about 9 p.m.  Smoke was showing from the roof when crews arrived.

The apartment complex is located near 59th and Georgetown.  The fire was reported in the 5800 block of Squirrels Run.

Officials say no one in the two story apartment building was injured, but two units were damaged forcing the occupants to find another place to stay.

Investigators estimate damage to the building at about $7,000.
