Kearney - Just after noon on Monday the Kearney Volunteer Fire Department (KVFD) responded to a call from E. 23rd St. in Kearney.
Lightning from Monday's afternoon storms struck a tree in the yard of a family home. The tree caught fire but KVFD said the fire did not spread to the home.
The initial blast from the strike knocked out several windows and caused some damage to the house.
None of the home's three residents were injured in the incident.
Food, shelter, comfort and care were provided by a team of two volunteers from the American Red Cross who responded to the scene.
