Leon Springs firefighters said a lightning bolt struck the back of the house and the attic went up in flames.

Due to the fire damage, the home was deemed a total loss.

No one was living in the home and no injuries were reported, officials said.

The same storm system that left tens of thousands in Bexar County without power produced hail and left some roadways flooded.
