Woodbury family displaced after lightning strike sets home ablaze
An east Woodbury family has been temporarily displaced from its home after it was set afire by a lightning strike early Tuesday morning.
The strong storm system that swept across the Twin Cities late on Monday hit Woodbury at about 11:30 p.m.
Shortly after midnight, a home on the 2200 block of Fieldstone Curve was struck by lightning. The family in the home did not detect anything wrong at the time, said Greg Schlichting, Woodbury assistant fire chief.
