No one was injured after a massive tree fell onto a city home.

Members of the Jamestown Fire Department and city officials were called Thursday at 12:20 p.m. to a report of a fallen tree at 909 W. Third St. The tree was found to have uprooted and landed on the property.

The homeowner said she was working when the tree fell.

“My neighbor called,” the homeowner told The Post-Journal. “I asked, ‘Did a branch fall?’ He said, ‘No, the whole tree.’ I couldn’t believe it. Just look at it.”

The woman, who has owned the West Third Street home for about nine years, said she has worried the tree would eventually fall.
