Lightning struck a house on Cherry Lane in Barrington on Thursday afternoon.
The lightning strike, which blew shingles off the house, happened at about 2:35 p.m. No one was inside the home.
The strike also blew out small appliances in at least three homes nearby.
Annette Seraikas was home watching TV with her sister when she heard a huge bang and saw the strangest, blinding flash of red light over her television.
"It looked like a big ball of fire, but it wasn't flaming you know. A big ball of fire and then it just went away just as quickly as it appeared. It was weird, but it was scary," she said.
23 Kenney Drive
