Tree Smashes Into Home In San Francisco’s Russian Hill Neighborhood

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A tree fell onto a home in San Francisco’s Russian Hill neighborhood Wednesday morning, a fire department spokeswoman said.

The incident was reported at 7:23 a.m. on Lurmont Terrace, a small street just south of the famed crooked part of Lombard Street, fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said.

The top of a tree about 3 feet in diameter fell onto the roof of the house, Talmadge said.

No one was injured, she said.

Firefighters left the scene by 9:14 a.m. but crews from PG&E and the city’s Department of Building Inspection remained at the scene late Wednesday morning, Talmadge said.
