Market gardeners Mr & Mrs Taylor were getting ready for bed at their cottage in Rowanfield, near Cheltenham.
As the thunder rumbled over head, the children were asleep in the next room & Mr Taylor was in bed as his wife knelt preying .
Suddenly through an open window shot a fire-ball, it passed through Mrs Taylor’s legs & hit the bed that Mr Taylor was laying on, causing it to collapse.
Then it crashed into a wall, causing the wall to collapse, this made the roof fall in.
After the dust settled the cottage was demolished!
But the remarkable thing was apart from Mrs Taylors singed thighs, no one was hurt!
