Coral Springs home struck by lightning
CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (WSVN) -- Lightning struck a Coral Springs home on Wednesday afternoon.
Coral Springs Fire Rescue responded to the home at 11748 SW 1st St. after a lightning bolt struck the home.
The homeowner had just come home with her children when she heard a loud boom followed by a faint smell of smoke. "As I walked in, within minutes, lightning struck and I heard a big boom and I saw flashing in the upstairs room and so I called my husband and I started looking around the house. I was trying to sniff around for any smoke and I found tile on the patio from the roof," said homeowner Maria Fuentes-Archilla.
The strike did not cause a fire, but did damage some roof tiles.
No one was injured.
