Part of a tree fell on a house and garage during a thunderstorm Sunday morning.

Part of the tree from the rear of 68 Virginia Ave. fell onto the house and detached garage at 64 Virginia Ave.

Capt. Chad Corfman of Tiffin Fire Rescue Division said he didn’t know what brought down the tree during the storm. Several power lines to the houses were compromised, he said.

The houses at 64 and 68 Virginia Ave. were without power, and American Electric Power responded to the scene.

The occupants of 64 Virginia Ave. were home at the time of the incident, according to Tiffin Fire Rescue Division.

Corfman said there were no reports of any injuries.

Earlier Sunday, a person reported a tree was down in the area of West Crocker Street, according to a Fostoria Police Department report.

Fostoria’s street department was contacted.
