FREDONIA, Ariz. (AP) — Two people were killed and a boy injured when lightning struck near a scenic overlook in northern Arizona.

Coconino County Sheriff's officials say the names of the man and woman who died were being withheld until relatives could be notified.

The two lived outside the United States, but their hometowns and ages weren't immediately available and it's unclear if they were a couple.

Sheriff's officials say a lightning bolt struck about 3 p.m. Tuesday in the area of the LeFevre Scenic Outlook on Highway 89A some eight miles north of Jacobs Lake.

The man and woman were in a group of people at the overlook and were pronounced dead at the scene.

A boy not associated with the other two victims was treated for non-life threatening injuries.
