A house burst into flames after being struck by lightning in Plymouth, emergency services say.
At least six fire engines rushed to Crownhill, after a couple's home was hit at about 20:30 GMT.
The male resident was "lucky to survive" but both people are safe, a spokesperson for Devon and Somerset Fire Service said.
Pete Libbey, a local resident, said the lightning strike and fire was something he had "never seen before".
A funding page has already been set up to raise money for the owner of the property, in Kirkwall Road.
