A massive tree fell down in the 1600 Park Road overnight, taking power lines with it and sparking a few small fires. 

Two houses had to be evacuated and at least half a dozen people were affected, according to officials. Residents saw the tree flare up and woke to popping sounds. 

Police shut down Park Road and Duke Energy cut power so that branches could be cut down. Once Duke restored power, residents were allowed back in their homes.
