JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

On Ridgewood Road, just before Parkridge Drive, a large oak tree fell between two houses, just missing the homes. The tree was very old and very big, but Entergy, Tri-County Tree Service, and the city of Jackson cleaned up the mess.

"I've owned this place for 20 years, and one of the most beautiful things about this yard was this tree, it's huge, shady, and one of the beautiful things about it," said property owner Stan Ingram. "If you can look at the bright side. It landed right between both these houses. If it would have fallen in any other direction, it would have taken a house completely out. It's huge."

It took crews just a couple of hours, but the road is now passable and safe to drive through.
