SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A downed tree caused traffic issues on a busy stretch of road in Springfield Monday morning.

According to Dennis Leger, aide to the Springfield Fire Commissioner, the tree came down on a house at 384 Parker Street.

No injuries were reported in the incident, Leger said, and it does not appear that anyone was inside the home at the time the tree fell.

“Pretty wild. I mean they’re trees, so they’re going to go. Thank goodness it wasn’t where the power lines were. It’s too bad, I feel sorry for the people that live there just to have to go through this,” Stanley Smola of Springfield said.

Parker Street was temporarily closed between Oak Street and Boston Road, over initial concern that another tree may fall. Traffic is now flowing freely in the area.
