Lightning strike injures 8

Eight people were injured, one critically, when lightning struck a house being built in Sabine Pass. We've learned six of the victims are from Houston. It happened yesterday afternoon when a storm moved into the area. Port Arthur police say the victims were working on an uncompleted roof when lightning struck.

Investigators say the modular home was being built to replace one destroyed by Hurricane Rita in 2005, then again by Hurricane Ike last year.
