RIESEL -- Fire fighters in Riesel were fighting flames during the middle of Tuesday night's tornados.

They say lightning hit a metal home causing a fire.

Lee Fields lived in the home while she was building a newer one.

She heard the lightning strike and called police, saving herself and her dog before it caught fire.

Another lightning strike hit the home while firemen were hosing it. That's when the flames got out of hand. Police say the home was a total loss.
