Gusty Winds Knock Tree On Top Of House

Posted by wlpo on April 15, 2012

While there wasn’t an outbreak of severe weather locally, Mother Nature still did some damage.

A little before 11 Sunday night, Ottawa Police and Fire Departments went to a house where a tree fell on it at Sycamore and Madison Streets just west of downtown.  The tree brought down some power lines but there was no fire to deal with.  Five people were inside the house but they were fine.

Just minutes after getting this call, Ottawa firefighters went to the south side baseball diamond across from Krogers for a transformer that was sparking.
