Tree Gets Struck By Lightning, Seemingly Burns from Inside

Milbury, Massachusetts — May 26, 4:43 AM. Firefighters responded to a call to an unlucky tree struck by lightning during a thunderstorm. Upon their arrival, an eerie sight welcomed them.

When the firefighters from Millbury Fire Department arrived in the early morning hours of Sunday they found that the fire had consumed the interior of the tree but had left the exterior intact, making the tree appear as if it’s burning from the inside out.

The firefighters eventually put the fire out.

One commented that the tree was the gate to hell and was thankful that it was closed as “we have enough demons already.”

I've seen trees like that hit by lightning. When I was working at a boy scout camp we had one catch fire, I helped cut it down with a chain saw and put out the fire.
