Lightning strikes palm tree

With the monsoon once again in full swing, Green Valley has seen its first palm tree fire of the season.

Green Valley Fire District personnel responded to the 100 block of West Los Robles around 6:15 p.m. Sunday evening after lightning from a storm moving through the area struck the palm tree in front of a residence.

The fire was contained to the tree and the house was not damaged, according to the GVFD.
