Punctuating sentences

The rainbow stretched across the sky from the ice cream truck to the house down the lane.

The rainbow streched across the sky from, the ice cream truck to the, house down the lane.

There needs to be a comma after "sky" but no others. I can't think of a good reason to put a comma AFTER a preposition (from) or an article (the).
