A massive tree has fallen on a Madison home.

The tree fell in the Stonegate subdivision about 3 p.m. in central Madison near City Hall. The tree is the second oldest oak tree in Mississippi, family said.

No one was at home at the time, they said.

"It by God's grace my parents are alive because they came to pick me up from work," said Sheba Sharkey, daughter of the couple who was renting the home.
