Lightning Strike Too Close for Comfort in Hazen


A close call for a Hazen family last night.

Rachael Folk says around 6:30 a lightning bolt hit their tree house. You can see the hole in the roof.

Folk says the strike was so loud all of her neighbors heard it.

She says her husband saw the bolt from the bedroom window but couldn't tell where it hit.

Folk says it was raining so hard they didn't check the yard until this morning.

They found debris in the yard and on the floor of the tree house.

She says it tripped the breaker in the neighbors garage and melted the cord on the lights the Folk's have hung up inside the tree house.

Her husband built the house and plans to make the repairs.
