Wind blowing through the area Friday morning knocked down trees and branches that landed on power lines and left a couple of thousand residents without electricity. The most significant problem spot was on Concord Avenue, where a large pine tree was blown down across the road. The tall tree fell away from the home and crashed down on utility lines, snapping a utility pole. St. Johnsbury firefighters were called to the scene to discover a wire on the road was burning. They blocked the road with a fire truck and monitored the scene while waiting for a crew from Green Mountain Power to arrive. While they were on the scene, another call related to down powerlines sent St. Johnsbury firefighters to Route 2B for what was reported as a grass fire.
