A 60-foot tall pine tree fell Wednesday morning in Cedar Grove after storms rolled through Kanawha County.
The Cedar Grove Volunteer Fire Department said it received the call about 3 a.m. that a tree had fallen across Kellys Creek Road and old Route 60. Fire officials estimate the tree was about 100 years old.
When the tree fell, it snapped a power pole and took down power lines. A small number of power customers were without power Wednesday morning. AEP had to bring in a new pole to replace the broken one.
Kellys Creek Road and old Route 60 were closed for about five hours while crews worked to remove the tree and fix the power lines.
