A Macclenny man was sent to the hospital after a large pine tree fell into his apartment and collapsed the roof during a sudden storm the afternoon of June 13.
Robert Dyer and his wife Minerva were inside the duplex at 420 S. 7th St. when high winds and heavy rainfall started about 4 pm.
Immediately following the incident Mrs. Dyer said her husband was alright, but he was taken by ambulance to Fraser hospital. She said she didn’t know where she could stay that night and worried about collecting her belongings after authorities cordoned off the residence.
Two birds in the home were not harmed, she said.
