No one was injured when a large Monterey pine tree crashed through part of a house Saturday afternoon in the Montclair district, the Oakland Fire Department said.

Firefighters responded to the 5900 block of Alhambra Way at about 3 p.m. to find the tree having smashed through a pool/tub room of the house. Rain was especially heavy at the time, said Battalion Chief James Bowron.

Bowron said:

“The homeowner was home, and just heard a big snap, and then a huge crash.”
