50-Foot Tree Crashes Into Danville House

DANVILLE (CBS SF) — Three people escaped injury when a 50-foot tree fell onto their house in unincorporated Danville on Monday afternoon, a San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District spokeswoman said.

Fire crews responded around 1:25 p.m. to reports that a large oak tree had come crashing down onto a single-family home in the 1900 block of Alameda Diablo, off of Diablo Road, fire district spokeswoman Kimberly French said.

The three people inside the home at the time were able to get out safely, and no injuries were reported.

Officials deemed the house uninhabitable because of the damage.

French said arborists were called in to determine what caused the tree to topple.
