ELLINGTON, CT (WFSB) -

It was quite the scare for a man in Ellington on Tuesday evening.

Heavy winds are being blamed for knocking a tree right onto his home.

The tree came down onto Matthew Peterson’s home on Mountain Road.

"I was in the kitchen doing dishes and I heard a loud crack,” Peterson said. “Wind started picking up. Next thing I know, the tree is on the side of the house, and the dog is freaking out."

Luckily nobody was hurt, but the outside of the house suffered some minor damage.
