Lightning struck a home on Jerome Street and Arlington Avenue in Cypress Hills Wednesday, sparking a fire.

The FDNY says they responded to the scene around 7:35 p.m. for an attic fire in a private dwelling.

The Cypress Hill family tells News 12 they are just happy to be alive. They say they felt their whole house shake and had a gut feeling that something was wrong.
