Freezing rain brings down tree onto Jonesboro home

Posted: Updated:

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The freezing rain made roads dangerous and caused a tree to fall on a house, according to a Jonesboro homeowner.

Tave Baker said he had been at work for about 30 minutes when he got the call around 9 a.m. to go back to his home on the corner of Jefferson and McClure because a massive tree in his yard fell onto his home.


Baker said the tree completely uprooted and caused substantial damage to his roof, windows, and heat and air unit. 

Baker said his power went out after the tree fell. 

Baker's dog was inside the house when the accident happened. The dog was not injured.
