AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

An Augusta home is badly damaged after being struck by lightning and catching on fire.

Richmond County fire crews got the call around 3:40pm about a fire at a structure on Tate Road.

Neighbors told WFXG they head a loud boom followed by what appeared to be lightning striking the roof of the house.

The homeowner, Anthony Price, was not home at the time and uninjured. No other injuries were reported.

He was actively working to fix up the house prior to the fire. He is unsure if he will re-build.
