Large tree falls on house, surprises Noblesville family eating dinner inside

NOBLESVILLE, Ind. — A Hamilton County family had just sat down for supper when a large tree in their front yard toppled onto their home.

"We just heard a big boom and walked out the front door," Caleb Kesler said. "It was sitting on the house and I ran back inside and got everybody out."

The house is located on Cherry Street. When our FOX59 crews were out capturing the damage, many people stopped by to offer their support and help. One of those people is Gary Powell, president of General Improvement, Inc. in Fishers.

"I typically don't do cold calls like this, but it was kind of a unique situation with the news crews here and with the tree on the house," Powell said.

We checked and Powell has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. He also holds a valid business license, according to the Secretary of State's website.
