Roanoke Fire-EMS was dispatched to the 2500 block of Creston Ave SW at 9:14 a.m. for a report of a tree falling on a house. Crews arrived to find major structural and property damage. Fire-EMS personnel performed hazard and structural stability assessments before turning the property over to the property owner. Two residents have been displaced. No injuries were reported.
