A vent on the roof of Ken's Charcoal Pits/City Slickers blew off the roof a short time ago. Owner Ken Mistler said the trees seemed to have saved three cars that were parked on the street from damage.
The restaurants remain open.
Meanwhile, a reader sent in the bottom picture of a downed tree at the Blind School and Bethany fire has been dispatched to 9524 Clipnock Road for a report of a utility pole that has broken and only being held up by wires.
There's also report of a tree down with wires involved at 240 State St., near Hart Street, Batavia, and wires "ripped from the residence" on Pearl Street Road. City fire is responding to the first call, East Pembroke to the second.
