03/02/2018 Tree vs House Whitman MA

03/02/2018 - WHITMAN, MASSACHUSETTS (PLYMOUTH COUNTY) - Around 1630 hours on the afternoon of Friday, March 2, 2018 the Whitman Fire Department responded to a reported tree into a house at 312 Commercial Street. Whitman Engine-243 and Car-3 arrived to find a large pine tree into a 1.5-story wood framed occupied dwelling. Live wires were down in the street and the front side of the house was being torn away from the rest of the house. The building and electrical inspectors were immediately requested to the scene. Firefighters entered the home and escorted the two occupants out of the building. Neither of the occupants home at the time were injured. A Nor'Easter storm that ravaged the South Shore of Massachusetts was to blame for the high winds that took down the tree. Currently, it is being determined whether or not the building can be saved, or will need to be demolished. Several other homes in Whitman were damaged by trees, but this suffered the most damage.
