FRANKLIN -- Storms moving through the area on Sunday seemed to hit Franklin the hardest, causing a large power outage and a garage fire on near 120th and Stevens.

One man was taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation after neighbors got him out of the home, according to the Franklin Fire Department. 

There is no word on his condition. 

Crews said it is still not clear whether lightning caused the fire.

Around 2,500 customers lost power in Sunday night across th southeast part of the state, with 1,500 in Franklin.

Most of the power outages have been caused by tree limbs bringing down power lines.

Watch above for more.
