STANDISH, Maine (AP) _ Sheriff's officials say a man and woman in Standish were killed after a lightning strike at their home.

Cumberland County sheriff's deputies and members of the Standish fire and rescue were called to a residence on Ossipee Trail West shortly before 6 p.m. Friday after getting a call that two people were injured by lightning.

Upon arrival, they found a man and woman lying unconscious on the ground outside, but life-saving measures were unsuccessful.

Officials said three small children were at home at the time, and that the adults had gone outside to retrieve a pair of eyeglasses the family dog had taken from one of the children.

The names of the deceased have not been released pending notification of relatives.

Reports say the two had gone outside their home to look for a pair of glasses that had been taken outside by their dog when they were struck.
