Lightning Strikes Child's Playpen

(Kate Murphy) -- A family got a scare while staying at their summer cottage during a lightning storm.

A bolt of lightning hit the cottage and left scorch marks along the wall of one room.

It blew out wiring and the family says it even left a hole in their one-year-old's play pen.

"I walked in the room, and the first thing that hit me was the smell of burnt plastic.  And a haze of smoke was filling the room.  So I just grabbed the baby, and yelled out 'fire!'  And then ran and got the kids and everyone out of the house."

No one was injured.
