Three people required medical attention after a 60-foot-tall tree fell across their Forest Hill home Tuesday morning.

Around 9:53 a.m. Fallston Volunteer Fire Company responded to a home in the 1900 block of Cosner Road.

The tree fell lengthwise across the roof off the one-story wood frame rancher. The tree fell when a contractor attempted to remove the tree, according to Dave Williams, public information officer for Harford County Volunteer Fire and EMS Association.

Two children and two adults were home when the tree fell. Nobody was trapped or pinned down, Williams said, but all four were still inside the home when emergency personnel arrived, said Williams.

A medical unit and rescue truck from Fallston VFC arrived first on the scene followed by a structural collapse team from Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company.

BGE shut off electricity to the home. A Harford County building inspector determined that the home is not habitable at this point, Williams said.

Harford County Community Services Disaster Assistance Team is tending to the immediate needs to the eight family members who occupy the home, Williams said.

The two children were transported by Fallston ambulance to Johns Hopkins Pediatric Unit in Baltimore for non-life-threatening injuries, according to Williams. The children’s grandmother was transported by a Jarrettsville Volunteer Fire Company ambulance to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air, also for non-life-threatening injuries.
