Some Redding residents will be without power Saturday night - after a tree fell on power lines.

It happened around 2 p.m. Saturday on Pioneer Lane near Fagan Drive.

An enormous oak tree fell onto power and telephone lines and also hit a neighbor's fence across the street.

Luckily, no one was injured.

But residents will be without power for quite some time.

“It's going to be a while they had some significant damage to the power pole so they have crews working on it right now,” said Steve Tompkins, a Redding fire captain.

Redding Electric Utility says although they're already working on fixing the power lines and removing the tree, residents in that area will be without power until Sunday morning.

Pioneer Lane has been shut down due to the work.

Detours along that area have been set in place.
