Several homes in Kent were struck by lightning during last night's storm which swept across the county.
Firefighters were called at around 9.30pm to a roof alight at a house in Maidstone Road, Lenham.
Crews used breathing apparatus, two hose reel jets and a main jet to tackle the fire.
Two properties in the Willesborough area of Ashford were also affected by lightning strikes which blew out power sockets and started several small fires in Hunter Road.
Thunder and lightning hit the county from 8pm. It led to the cancellation of Kent's cricket match against Somerset at Canterbury, which was abandoned with the hosts 40 runs ahead.
