Huge oak tree crashes through roof of Orange home

An family in Orange say they are lucky to be alive after a huge oak tree came crashing through their roof Monday morning.

A town official told the family that if the tree had fallen six inches in a different direction, one of them could have been seriously injured.

The tree damaged the house badly and it is unclear at this point whether the house will be repaired or completely rebuilt.
