Tree Crashes Through Hartford House

Two people were taken to the hospital Sunday after a large tree branch crashed through their home in Hartford.

The woman and her adult daughter were sleeping in their Home at 43 Mansfield street when the limb from a tree fell and put a gaping hole in the roof at the back of the house.

Debris was scattered in a bedroom where the two women were sleeping, according to a relative.

Charles Combs said he contacted Hartford last week over his concerns about the tree limb.

"I’ve been monitoring this tree to where each the way it was cracking, I saw it open more and more and more. I didn’t know it was going to be today. I thank God for what did take place today as far as it could have been a lot worse,” Combs said.

The tree actually sits on a neighboring property.

The two women were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to authorities.
