Kamloops firefighters examine the pieces of wood on the back of the home at 2078 Van Horne Drive in Aberdeen Tuesday after lightning struck a tree, then moved down a clothes line to the sundeck. Power was cut to the top floor by the firefighters as they checked for any hot spots in the walls. The owner Peter Baltakis was on the scene to assist firefighters assessing the damage. No one was hurt in the unusual mishap.
