BANGOR - Thunderstorms rolled into the Bangor area with force Wednesday night, lighting up the sky, and striking one home not far from the waterfront.
Bangor Fire responded to 74 Patten Street to a vacant second story apartment, where, upon arrival, a small fire was burning behind a gas stove.
Crews were able to knock the flames down quickly, then turned off the gas in the apartment.
Residents say it was a deafening sound, pictures falling off walls from the impact, and even some saying it sounded like a bomb.
No one was injured in the fire.
