Rock Creek Home Struck By Lightning
By Pat Boyle
A bolt of lightning split a tree in two early Tuesday, went into the ground and then hit a home on Northwest Rock Creek Court.
Part of the tree crashed into the home. The man who lives there with his wife tried to put out the fire with an extinguisher. He was taken to the hospital after suffering an apparent heart attack. He's expected to be okay.
Neighbor Natalie Adkins heard the boom around 1:00 and says its the loudest noise she's ever heard. She thought maybe there had been an accident on the freeway.
