CREVE COEUR, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Firefighters say a home suffered heavy damage after lighting hit a tree, causing it to fall on the house.

The lightning strike happened in the 13000 block of Narbonne in the Bellerive Estates subdivision Monday afternoon.

The tree fell on the home, causing heavy damage, but chunks of wood and other debris caused minor damage at four other homes, firefighters said.

The home that the tree fell on does not have power and crews decided to shut off gas to the house.

There are no reports of any injuries.
