EDISON - Tonight's storm may have been fast and furious but there was still a lot of damage. In Upper Freehold Township, trees knocked out power while blocking some roads.

Tree clearing crews and utility workers are out trying to clean up a mess but have a lot on their plate. Burlington Path Road in particular was hit very hard, with all homes on the street losing power.

The storm also started a fire in Passaic County. Officials say lightning is to blame for a house fire on Lindys Drive in West Milford. No one was hurt in the fire.
