Lightning strikes caused chaos in Lexington Wednesday.

Lightning Sparks Blaze, Electrocutes Worker in Lexington
Lightning strikes on Wednesday morning lit a Lexington home on fire and electrocuted a golf course worker.

One of the people inside the home at 20 Tufts Rd. said the strike sounded like "an explosion" in the attic,  WHDH/7News reported.

"When I opened the door there was fire on the stairs," Alan Jin told WHDH. "We just all went outside."

The fire caused $150,000 worth of damage to the home, according to MyFoxBoston.com.

At about the same time Wednesday, a Lexington Golf Club worker was electrocuted when a lightning strike caused a surge while he was working on an electrical panel, according to Fox.

The worker was treated and released from a local hospital.
