    HF)--A lightning strike is believed responsible for a fire that destroyed a local home Saturday night. Enid fire officials believe the blaze was accelerated by a natural gas leak. Enid Fire Marshal Ken Helms, said firefighters received a call at 11:50 p.m. from the home at 4813 Oakcrest regarding an unusual odor. The caller suspected the home may have been struck by lightning. The arriving unit saw smoke coming from the roof and immediately called for backup. The occupants of the home, three adults and three pets, were able to make it out unharmed. While battling the blaze, a garage door fell on several firefighters, but there were no serious injuries, Helms said. Much of the roof and most of the ceiling was destroyed in the fire, and all of the ceilings in the home have collapsed, adding the home is likely a total loss. A damage estimate of $275,000 was listed on the report.

Allen was instrumental in building David Allen Memorial Ballpark, one of the country's premier amateur ballparks, in honor of her late son, David, who died in October 1995. In 2018, Allen was honored with the Dick Lambertz Memorial Award, presented each year to a volunteer who has demonstrated significant long-term support of the United Way. In recent years she headed up establishing the Allen Family Opportunity Scholarship, which provides a $10,000 annual scholarship for up to four years for Enid area students headed to a two- or four-year college. With the Allen Family Charitable Foundation donation of $2 million to create it, the scholarship is expected to be funded for at least 15 to 20 years.
