A falling tree knocked down wires before landing on a home in Newhall Sunday afternoon.

Los Angeles County Fire Department officials responded to reports of a structure fire on the 25000 block of De Wolfe Road in Newhall around 3 p.m., according to Supervisor Cheryl Sims.

Once they arrived on the scene, firefighters found that a tree had fallen onto the house and power lines, igniting nearby brush, Sims said.
