Lightning struck a Bondurant garage overnight causing it to catch fire.

The fire destroyed the detached garage at 401 Lincoln Street Northeast.

The homeowner says he heard a big bang around 2:00 a.m. He ran outside and saw the garage on fire.  He says he pulled out his pick-up truck before the entire building went up in flames.

The fire also destroyed his hot tub and blew out some of the back windows in his house. The heat from the flames melted the playset’s slide, the lawn chairs, basketball hoop and flower pot.

He says it will cost about $15,000 to rebuild.
