Fallen tree damages house

Team Radio Marketing Group - May 18, 2017 1:32 pm

The Ponca City Fire Department and other emergency personnel responded  to a house in the 200 block of North Lake Wednesday afternoon after a large tree split and fell.

A portion of the tree fell on a garage and  the back of a house, pulling the electric service from the outer wall of the house.

No one was injured in the incident, but Ponca City Energy responded to shut off the electric service as a live wire was still connected to the house.

Part of the tree remained standing, but was split in the trunk, threatening another garage next door.
