“There was just a lot of debris. The tree limbs went through our living room, so there was some rain coming in last night. Hopefully we’re going to get the tree taken care of and there’s just some debris. Thankfully the fire department came out and they did an amazing job. They put down a tarp and they moved our belongings and everyone was trying to get a hold of us to let us know what had happened,” said homeowner Sarah Jeske. “They did a great job inside.”

Firefighters say strong winds that moved through on Sunday afternoon were likely to blame for the tree collapse.

Crews removed the tree by cutting it into large chunks and pushing those pieces off the roof.
