Upon Engine 1 pulling up to the scene they had large tree that had fallen into a house, and brought down multiple power lines, along with cable lines down in the roadway/yard of the house. There was a small fire on the tree. Engine 1 crew pulled a 150 foot attack line and stood by on the Bravo side of the house in the neighbors yard.
