(07/22/10) FAIRFIELD - A powerful storm moved through Fairfield last night and left quite a mess.

The sounds of chainsaws and wood chippers could be heard throughout the town this morning as residents worked to clean up their streets and yards. Many twigs and branches were scattered and two trees, one as old as the historic house it stands next to, met their demise as ferocious winds cracked their bark.

Many homes were left without power last night, but the utility companies say it was restored this morning.
