OSSIPEE — A tree crashed through a house Friday, its owners told the Sun.
John Lungo, 68, of Malden, Mass., owns the house at 2195 Route 16 with his wife, Debbie Dellio Lungo.
Debbie told the Sun about the incident over the weekend and the Sun spoke to John on Monday.
The Lungos also own the Coffee Caboose Ice Cream stand in town. Their daughter, Jacqulyn, had lived there for a few years but moved back to Florida earlier this year, said John Lungo.
“Thank God nobody was inside of it,” he said.
Friday was a windy day, which may have contributed to the tree falling.
The Lungos were alerted to the tree by a neighbor. The home is located next to Mother Earth’s Creations Pow Wow Grounds.
The home was put up for sale and listed with Verani Reality — Berkshire Hathaway Home Services. The home is a two-bedroom, one-bathroom ranch with a price of just under $140,000.
The tree went into a bedroom and the bathroom.
John Lungo said he just finished renovations to the home, which included adding hardwood floors, rugs and new appliances. He added a new toilet.
“I just redid 90 percent of it completely over brand new,” said Lungo who hopes that insurance will cover the damage.
Conway Police Logs indicate there were a few trees and wires down in various parts of town Friday. Shortly before 11 a.m., a large pine tree fell across the southbound lane of Route 16.
There were trees and or wires down on Robinwood Acres, Transvale Road, Westside Road, Modock Hill Road, Davis Hill Road and Gulf Road.
