30 Foot Tree Fell, Took Down Muni Power Lines in Haight-Ashbury

A roughly 30-foot fell this afternoon in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury neighborhood, taking down some Municipal Transportation Agency power lines in the process, a fire dispatcher and a spokesman for Muni said.

Fire crews were dispatched at 2:31 p.m. on a report of a tree down at the intersection of Page and Divisadero streets, the fire dispatcher said.

The dispatcher said there were no reports of any injuries.

The tree took down some of Muni’s power lines, but Muni spokesman Paul Rose said power was restored at 4:06 p.m.

There was no disruption to service because the agency was able to reroute service around the fallen tree, Rose said. As of around 4:30 p.m., Rose said Muni was running its regular route.

The city’s Department of Public Works, along with police, are handling the situation, the fire dispatcher said. Fire crews cleared the scene at 3:54 p.m., he said.
