near a rare weather occurrence on Monday near Marianna, Florida, lightning struck during a storm and ignited the interior of a tree without harming the exterior.
On Tuesday, the tree was struck by lightning, and the Weather Channel posted a video of the ensuing fire that was raging inside the tree. Depending on the size of the tree, when lightning strikes it, it frequently causes the top of the tree to burst into flames or the entire tree to be destroyed. The remarkable occurrence of the unharmed tree containing the raging fire inside its trunk was the result of an ideal storm of circumstances.
Through a crack in the tree’s trunk, the audience can see the fire within, yet the area outside the tree is unharmed.
According to Bob Larson, senior meteorologist at AccuWeather, for the inside fire to start, the tree must be the right size and struck in the proper spot.
