SUNBURG -- A rural Sunburg home was destroyed in a fire early Tuesday after being struck by lightning.


Dan and Sue Kallevig escaped with only the clothes on their backs.

They credit a neighbor for pounding on their back door around 1 a.m., alerting them to the fire that had started in the front of their house.
