Tree Smashes Cars and Sparks Flames in Sonoma County

Heavy rain Saturday caused a tree to fall on three cars in Monte Rio, bringing down power lines with it, sparking fires at two nearby homes. 

Fortunately, fire crews were nearby attending to another fallen tree and were quickly able to put out the flames.

“Two things, it was raining, and it was daytime. If it was the middle of the night, it would have burned longer because nobody would have saw it,” said Monte Rio Fire Chief Steve Baxman.
