Local firefighters say the evidence of a lightning strike was left behind on a home's chain link fence Thursday. The Tri-Community Volunteer Fire Department (VFD) responded to a call that a home had been struck by lightning in Apison.

Pictures the VFD shared on Twitter show scorch marks on several spots on the fence.
