MANILA, AR (KAIT) - Firefighters and emergency crews responded to a house fire in Manila behind Harold's Discount Furniture Friday.

The fire was at a home on Amber Lane in Manila.

On Monday the owner of the home, Greg Stallings, said  his house was struck by lightning 2 times when it caught fire. 

Stallings said his family was not in the house at the time. 

He said he already knows what he plans to do with what is left of his home.

"I'm just waiting for everything to get settled and get it tore down and build it back," Stallings said.

Stallings was thankful for the support the Manila community has shown.

He said they have received offers from people that included everything from clothes to shelter.
