WEST LINN, OR (KPTV) -

Around 1:03 p.m. Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue were called out to a report of a lightning strike at a home in West Linn near Churchill Downs Drive & Clubhouse Drive.

The person who called in the report first thought the home was struck and was possibly on fire.

After TVF&R arrived to the home, crews found that the lightning strike hit a large tree near the home. There was no fire when crews arrived.

TVF&R said repercussion from the lightning strike was strong enough to blow out a few windows in the home and also knocked out power to a couple homes.

No injuries were reported.
