Firefighters were called out to attend a rather eerie-looking blaze in Millbury, Massachusetts on Sunday.
The alarm was raised at the Clearview Country Club in the early hours of the morning after locals saw a bolt of lightning strike a tree in the grounds and set it on fire.
When firefighters arrived they found that the fire had consumed the interior of the tree but had left the exterior intact, resulting in a smouldering wooden husk silhouetted against the early morning sky.
The team took several photographs (see below) and was able to safely extinguish the blaze.
Fortunately nobody was injured during the incident.
