Two people were taken to the hospital when a tree came down on a home in Enfield during severe thunderstorms Tuesday.

Firefighters said a man and a woman trapped in the home on Nevins Avenue when the tree came down on the roof. Neighbors helped them escape.

“Fortunately the tree wasn’t on them or anything like that holding them physically. Just that they were elderly. All the insulation came down. They were covered in insulation and some abrasions and bruises that were apparently visible," North Thompsonville Fire District Chief Earl Provencher explained.

Both were taken to St. Francis Hospital for what's believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.

Firefighters said the home may be totally destroyed. Building officials were called in to assess the damage.

Crews were also busy with wires and branches down in the area, and a tree that fell on another home.

Severe thunderstorms with strong winds moved through the area Tuesday night.
