A strong storm has taken down trees and power lines in southern New Hampshire and a lightning strike is believed to be the cause of a house fire in Peterborough.

WMUR-TV reports police had to block off a neighborhood in Salem after trees fell on roofs, lawns and cars. Branches and power lines were in the streets Thursday.

No injuries were reported.

The fire in Peterborough started in a basement Thursday afternoon and was put out quickly. No one was hurt.

Eversource officials said crews restored power to more than 2,000 customers in the greater Keene and Laconia regions.
