HOUSTON (AP) — Four people have been hurt after an apparent lightning strike in Houston as they worked on the foundation of a house.

The Houston Fire Department says Wednesday afternoon’s accident left one worker critical and three in stable condition.

All four victims were transported to Houston hospitals. A department spokesman Thursday had no immediate update on their conditions.

Lightning also damaged a tree near where the victims had been working.
