LIVERPOOL, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — No one was hurt after a large tree came crashing down onto a vacant home in Liverpool. The call first went out just after 8:30 p.m. Tuesday along Fourth Street in the village.
The tree also took down some power lines, leaving more than two dozen National Grid customers in the dark.
NewsChannel 9 spoke with the Liverpool Deputy Fire Chief about what first responders saw.
“The tree was on wires, lotta sparking, there was a fire in the tree, which we deemed, the home was vacant at the time,” said Liverpool Fire Department Deputy Chief Matthew Manley.
National Grid crews hope to have the power back on around midnight.
