Homeowners: Fire caused by tree limbs on wires
A fire broke out early Sunday morning in Oakland, leading to the evacuation of many homes on Ryerson Avenue. No one was injured.
According to homeowners, the cause of the fire was low-hanging tree limbs, which were touching electrical wires. Some of the neighbors there believe if anyone had walked by when the wires came down, they may have been electrocuted.
Power was later restored to the area, but emergency crews warn homeowners to call electricity providers immediately if trees are touching wires.
