At about 5:30 am, Friday, April 22, 2011, Prince George's County Firefighter/Medics responded to a Glenn Dale home that had sustained significant damage from a fallen tree. Fire/EMS units and the Departments Technical Rescue team arrived in the 10000 block of Dubarry Road and found that a large mature tree had fallen from the back yard on top of and into the 1-story single family home.
There was one person inside at the time that was uninjured and self-evacuated. Technical Rescue personnel surveyed the damage and controlled utilities going to the house. There was significant damage and the house has been declared unsafe to re-occupy.
