BEND, OR -- Lightning struck a parked car Friday, piercing the windshield and setting the interior on fire.


A neighbor heard a car alarm, and investigating, discovered the car’s shattered windshield and a fire inside - shortly afterward, the airbag deployed.


Deputy Fire Marshal Susie Maniscalco says crews were called to a car on fire outside a house on the South End of Bend about 5:45 pm on Friday. The car was unoccupied and the owners were out of town. The fire caused about $7,000 in damage to the car.


The strike was part of a severe lightning storm in the area Friday evening that also caused heavy rain, high winds, and hail.
