Lightning Strikes Town of Texas Home

Town of Texas - A single family home was hit by lightning on Tuesday night. 

Firefighters say the bolt hit a tree and ran through the family's yard.

It then went through the home and out through telephone wires.

The lightning did destroy a walkway and tear up the yard.

"I was standing over there, I walked away, and that's when it struck," said Debbie Block, who lives in the home.  "And everything went flying. Ten seconds earlier, I don't think I'd be standing here."

Nobody was hurt.
