Vancouver home possibly struck by lightning

VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

A house in Vancouver was possibly struck by lightning Sunday evening.

The incident occurred at about 7 p.m. in the 4000 block of NE 130th Avenue.

Neighbors told Fox 12 they heard a loud boom and saw smoke coming from the roof of the home. They said the fire department arrived on scene and quickly put it out.

"I was inside the house and the house shook and I heard a big loud bang, a bang that I've never heard before and it just scared the living daylights out of me," said a neighbor who lives across the street. "I knew it hit something and it was pouring down rain and I didn’t want to come out with all the lightning, then I peeked out the window and there was smoke coming from the back of their house. It apparently hit a tree and it hit the house."

No one inside the home was injured. It's unclear how much damage the home sustained.
