The home is located at 4602 S. Zenobia, and three residents in the home were able to get out safely.

Firefighters responded and crews had to punch holes in the roof to get at a small fire that resulted from the lightning strike.

“There was a lot of thunder and a big flash of lightning and next thing I knew the house was on fire,” homeowner Shawn Reynolds said.

Residents told CBS4 a house across the street and another house nearby were also hit by lightning in the past year.
