Last week’s storm brought strong winds that tore up several large trees, including the tree pictured below. Mike Roche snapped these photos just south of Foster on Sherman Avenue. According to Roche, a forestry crew leader on the scene described the tree as a sugar maple, estimated to be between 75 and 80 years old.

The Evanston Fire Department reported that first-arriving companies responded within minutes, and due to an aggressive fire attack the blaze was extinguished within 20 minutes. The four occupants safely evacuated the structure, according to the Evanston Fire Department.

  1. It’s very clear that the Grinch stole Christmas in Evanston. I haven’t seen one decoration that the city has put this year. And nobody has put up any decorations outside their houses. The city looked like a scene from the Walking Dead!
    What in God’s name is is wrong with everybody? If there was ever a time when we needed a lot of Christmas cheer. That time is now!
    Get it together, Evanston!
