GLEN ROCK - Lightning struck a 75-foot tree and a house in Glen Rock during a thunderstorm early Tuesday morning.

Homeowner Brian Radman said that at first he didn't realize his house on Gaynor Place was on fire as a result of the lightning. He said he was working on his computer in the basement when the lightning struck. He says he may have felt some of its effects because he had some tingling in his hands.

Glen Rock Assistant Fire Chief Art Zanotti lives next door to the house. He said that when he saw the fire, he stopped his car, got his extinguisher and went inside the house to put out the flames.

The lightning struck around 3:30 a.m. No one was hurt.
