A MASSIVE MAHOGANY TREE fell on a house at Station Hill, St Peter on Saturday night, damaging a large section of the house.

As a result, Station Hill road is closed for the rest of the day as personnel from the St Peter District Emergency Organisation, headed by Dave Hurley, are in the process of removing the tree.

The home is occupied by two people.

It is the second time in less than a week a mahogany tree has fallen. Last Wednesday, a tree estimated to be more than 50 years old, fell at Endeavour, St James.

On Friday, a tree also fell along the Spring Garden Highway, breaking a utility pole and causing a power outage in the area. (RL)
