TWINSBURG TOWNSHIP — A falling tree damaged a Hiram Lane home Sunday afternoon, but no injuries were reported, said Twinsburg Firefighter/paramedic Michael Perlatti.
Perlatti said the call came in at 3:26 p.m. and the residents were home at the time.
"A maple tree fell into the back of the house during a high wind episode prior to the rainstorm," he said. "The tree broke through the roof and through several trusses."
Perlatti said the tree’s base was rotted. Electricity to a second-floor bedroom where the tree struck was shut off and firefighters removed items from the room, including furniture, and tarps were placed over the roof to limit water damage as much as possible.
Perlatti said he believes the homeowner called a tree removal service and it appears that other than the bedroom, the home is habitable.
