High winds caused some serious damage in Lubbock Tuesday evening, including right here at KCBD.
Lightning struck near the station during our 6 p.m. newscast, knocking us off the air and causing a grass fire right outside our doors.
The building was evacuated as smoke filled the area.
Firefighters were finally able to contain the blaze around 8:15 p.m.
Everyone at the station is safe and we'll have all the details for you tonight at 10.
