Tree falls on two homes in Forest Grove

FOREST GROVE, OR (KPTV) -

Two families in Forest Grove are unable to go back inside their homes after a large Oak tree fell on top of two houses Monday night.

Officials said the tree was at least 50 feet tall and fell from the backyard of one of the homes on Fletch Street around 9 p.m.

Luckily everyone inside was unhurt.

Crews said at least one house is now unsafe to live in because the top floor is too heavily damaged.

A 14-year-old girl was alone inside one of the homes at time of the accident. She said the crash was so loud, she thought it was an earthquake.

Officials are unsure what caused the tree fall.
