Posted: Updated:

Severe thunderstorms swept through Western Massachusetts Wednesday evening, leaving behind a wake of damage in their path.

Numerous fire departments responded to a Westhampton home after it was struck by lightning and a fire broke out inside the garage Wednesday evening.

Crews responded to 30 Tipping Rock Rd. shortly after 7 p.m. after a wave of severe thunderstorms rolled through much of Western Massachusetts.

Chesterfield, Southampton and Williamsburg fire departments responded to assist with the fire while a Huntington Fire Department crew responded to the Westhampton Fire Department for coverage assistance.

The house is deep in the woods, according to our Western Mass New crew on scene.

Firefighters were being trucked up the lengthy driveway to the house in order to extinguish the blaze.
