LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - A large tree fell in Monday night narrowly missing a neighbor's house.

It happened in the 200 block of Cambridge lane in Longview.

According to a local tree service, they had been contacted about the tree which had reportedly started to lean a few days before it fell. They say they believe saturated ground from recent rain had caused the huge hardwood to lean, pulling up its roots. They think the steady wind Monday night finally pushed the tree over onto neighboring property, but it landed in the front yard in front of the house. A tree limb caused a broken window on the home. The tree service says it was lucky the tree landed where it did.
