Homeowner feels lucky to be alive after tree falls on his house

RANKIN COUNTY, MS (WLBT) -

A homeowner in Rankin County says he's lucky to be alive after a tree fell on his home on Harrison Street during Saturday's storm.

The owner of the home said he and his wife were watching TV when they heard a sudden crash outside.  He went outside and realized a tree had fallen on the corner of the house.

He saw sparks coming from the damaged area of the house and called 911.

Emergency Management Specialist Brian Grantham said a shed and a school bus parked in front of the home broke the tree's fall and kept it from causing more damage.

No one was injured in the accident.
