A lightning strike during severe weather Saturday afternoon punched a hole in a roof of a house off Perkins Road, the St. George Fire Department reported.

Several units were dispatched to a Pendleton Way house around 2:30 p.m. Investigators found a hole at the peak of the roof, but no signs of a fire or other damage, said Eldon Ledoux, a St. George Fire Department spokesman.

The fire department covered the roof with a tarp before leaving the scene, Ledoux said.
