An oak tree fell onto a house in the Eagle Rock area Thursday, injuring a 91-year-old woman.

Firefighters were sent to the 1700 block of Campus Road shortly before 11 a.m., according to Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The woman, whose name was not released by authorities, was taken to a hospital for treatment of a non-life-threatening arm injury, Humphrey said.

“Though there has been rain and wind, (the) LAFD cannot formally declare a reason for the tree falling,” Humphrey said.

The woman, who has dementia, awoke screaming when the tree caved into her room, alerting her caregiver, according to a report from the scene.

Earlier this week, a woman died when an 80-foot tree fell on her and other members of a wedding party in Whittier.
