APACHE JUNCTION, AZ (CBS5) -
The winds were so strong in some places during Friday night's storm that an awning was knocked off a home and hit some power lines, causing a small fire.
 
The homeowner whose property caught on fire said he lost a couple of Palo Verde trees because of the fire but luckily it went out on its own before spreading to his home.

"It was going pretty good and caught this tree on fire and we were concerned about the fence but it kind of blew itself out," said AJ Barkley.

The storm knocked out power to several of the homes in the area.
