Storm Snaps Tree & Starts Fire


Reporter: Angela Fowler

Danville, VA - A quick storm came through Danville Thursday afternoon and caused some damage near Westover Drive.

A tree fell on a power line on Wilson Road and started a fire.

Right now, the fire department is waiting on the power company to come cut the tree down. They say the tree bent under pressure from the winds.

"It doesn't take a lot of wind for some of these trees to get them over and create problems," said Steven Decker, a Danville firefighter.

No residents lost power from the incident as of right now.
