A lightning strike is being blamed for a business fire in downtown Ramona early Thursday morning.

The owner of the business, Bret Chew, says neighbors saw the strike and then saw smoke coming from the structure.

The fire heavily damaged the roof and attic as well as the beauty/barber shop inside the building. No one was injured.

The Ramona Fire Department put the fire out.  Chew, who is a City of Bartlesville firefighter, helped with the effort.

Ramona is located on Highway 75 in the southern part of Washington County.
