A tree came crashing down on a home on Bastian Rd. I spoke to a neighbor who says he heard it happen and went over to check on the family. We’re told they are ok. Fire dep is working on ways to get them out now. @news10nbc I’ll have more at 11 pic.twitter.com/Z6tyUj5bfF— Stephanie Duprey (@WHEC_SDuprey) December 12, 2021
