HOWARD, WI (WTAQ) - Strong storms caused a rude awakening for a Howard family Friday morning.

Lightning struck the back of their home on Keystone Court. One woman and four kids were inside at the time, but no one was hurt.

The strike led to one child being knocked out of bed, and a fire to start.

"When we arrived there was smoke and flames visible near the rear of the home - obviously a lightning strike," Howard firefighter Don Phillips told FOX 11.

Fire officials say there was significant damage to the roof of the home. They estimate the damage to be around $25,000.
