While our area is bracing for more potentially severe storms Monday night, one suburban family is dealing with the thunderstorms that blew through early Monday morning.One of those storms produced lightning that struck a home in suburban Plainfield.

The bolt of lightning hit around 2 a.m., sparking a fire on the roof and in the attic of the house on the 1100-block of Millennium Parkway.

The family was sleeping at the time but did get out safely.
